The Selection Panel is independent of the Fellowship for Indigenous Leadership Advisory Committee to ensure that there is no conflict of interest in the selection of the Emerging Leaders and/or Fellows.
The Panel comprises both First Nations and non-First Nations members of high standing in the community. They bring particular community, business and leadership expertise.
Each year the panel consists of four to five members and over the last 14 years we have had thirteen First Nations and five non-First Nations panel members. After reviewing all applications and interviewing the shortlisted candidates, the Selection Panel provides their recommendations to the Advisory Committee.
