About the Program
The TAG Emerging Leaders initiative (ELI) is designed to help cultivate the next generation of technology leaders in philanthropy. Through a series of coaching, mentoring pairing, and educational opportunities, Emerging Leaders are provided with expertise and skills needed to advance in their careers.

"The TAG Program was truly a continuous learning experience. I increased my knowledge about managing my brand, defining my leadership skills, understanding culture, and understanding power relations. Most importantly, I was able discuss these topics with my mentor in person, over the phone, or in email."
