Heartland and the Kalmanovitz Initiative for the Labor & the Working Poor at Georgetown University have collaborated to offer the Labor Capital Strategies Summer Fellowship

A select group of important investment, labor, business and academic leaders, spurred by GU Business School Alum Michael Psaros of KPS Capital Partners and Allan Emkin of Pension Consulting Alliance (PCA), first met in December 2016 at the University for this extraordinary opportunity. The plan was met with enthusiastic support, and the group, by itself, committed to underwrite the first group of fellows for the summer of 2017, providing a pipeline for student prospects. From this meeting, the Labor Capital Strategies Fellowship was formed.

Some sponsors and host organizations have included: KPS Capital Partners, Segal Marco, ULLICO, Blue Wolf Capital Partners, LIUNA, AFL-CIO HIT, Teamsters, Hamilton Lane, Change to Win Investment Group, The Sterling Organization, and GCM Grosvenor. Fellowship alums came from US and international undergraduate, graduate, and law schools representing the Ivy League, HBCU, Seven Sisters schools and more.


Students are placed in a paid field practicum with responsible investment funds, policy groups, or capital stewardship offices. The program starts with an orientation (with faculty drawn from visionary investment, labor and business, and new urban leadership) at Georgetown. In addition, the program provides group learning experiences for the fellows as a whole.
