Encore Fellow 2011
Louisa Hellegers brought four decades of experience as an editor and publisher with several global publishing firms, most recently with Cambridge University Press. Hellegers relied on her corporate and nonprofit leadership, strategic planning and organizational development background in her 2011 fellowship with the Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO), which is dedicated to providing immediate, effective and comprehensive employment services to men and women with recent criminal convictions. She helped implement the center ‘s Human Capital Plan to maximize the potential of their middle management teams and to support the ongoing development of the leadership capacity within the New York-based organization. Hellegers was subsequently hired by CEO as its Organizational Development Director and is now the Encore Fellows Program Director in New York.
