NLI Senior Fellows are highly accomplished leaders at the pinnacle of their respective endeavors. To become an NLI Senior Fellow, an individual must be nominated and participate in a Senior Fellows Seminar which aims at moving the participants from success to significance. The thought-leadership seminar focuses on the ideals and ideas of a good society as well as value creation for Nigeria. A critical component of the seminar is to encourage the participants to create impact by moving from thought to action through a project that reflects that values and passion.
