Care.com founder and CEO Sheila Lirio Marcelo has been named one of the 2012 Henry Crown Fellows at The Aspen Institute.
The fellowship is for leaders in the business world, all entrepreneurs under the age of 45, that have already worked their way to becoming big successes in their fields. The fellowship is designed for those who are at a point of inflection in life and career, challenging them to become community-spirited leaders. The fellowship is a two-year long program, structured around four seminars, and every fellow takes part in an individual project on leadership.
“This is the ideal moment for me to engage with the Aspen Institute and I’m honored to be part of such an esteemed group of accomplished professionals,” said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com “Its focus on leadership development offers the opportunity to enhance key skills as I expand my professional reach beyond U.S. borders; the Institute’s global perspective would inform my approach to how and why we expand our business into other markets and cultures; and no doubt, the Institute’s commitment to encouraging action promises to inspire me as I seek to become a voice on behalf of others.”
