Author: Helios Education FoundationSeptember 22, 2016
Dr. Paul Perrault, Vice President and Director of Research and Evaluation for Helios Education Foundation has been selected as a 2016 Flinn-Brown Fellow. He joins 35 other individuals from across Arizona who share a commitment to state-level public service.
The Flinn-Brown experience begins with Fellows, who are selected competitively, studying major issues facing the state, and gaining an understanding of numerous perspectives on politics and public policy to inform their leadership. They participate in a 12-part seminar series led by Arizona policy and political experts, a leadership master class and executive coaching.
Fellows also join the Flinn-Brown Network, an ongoing support system for personal and professional growth in public service. Flinn-Brown Fellows are expected to pursue roles as state-level elected officials, state-agency or public-policy-organization executives, policy advisors, or members of state boards or commissions. The 2016 cohort brings the total membership in the Flinn-Brown Network to 260.
Since Flinn-Brown’s inaugural cohort participated in the Academy in 2011, the initiative has established a reputation for rigorous learning and has fostered a strong network to help expand the cadre of state-level leaders with the knowledge, skills and commitment to address Arizona’s long-term issues.
The Flinn Foundation is a Phoenix-based private, nonprofit, grantmaking organization founded by Dr. Robert S. Flinn and his wife, Irene P. Flinn, in 1965 with a mission, “To improve the quality of life in Arizona.” Along with the Arizona Center for Civic Leadership, the Foundation supports the advancement of Arizona’s bioscience sector, arts and culture in Arizona, and the Flinn Scholars Program. The Thomas R. Brown Foundations supports solutions to community and state issues through strategic grants and educational programs.
