What does a nonprofit leader’s radical sabbatical look like? Now’s your chance to find out.

Our President & CEO, Yodit Mesfin Johnson, shares some of her experiences during the first chapter of her sabbatical, taken in summer of 2023. The sabbatical is part of the McGregor Fund’s 2023 Eugene A. Miller fellowship, of which Yodit was one of nine (9) awardees. The program supports McGregor’s grant partners’ CEOs and executive directors to take extended time away from their organizations to recharge, immerse in enriching experiences, build skills and knowledge, and broaden their vision – all according to a plan of their own design.
