Laura Greenfield, Deputy Director for External Engagement, has been awarded a place on the 2021 cohort of Clore Fellowships. The Clore Fellowship is a bespoke professional development opportunity for leaders from across a wide range of cultural disciplines and sectors, renowned for developing dynamic and creative leaders and for its focus on the positive impact cultural organisations can have on society. 

Laura Greenfield said: “This is an extraordinary time to embark on a Clore Fellowship as the pandemic continues to have an unprecedented impact on our sector and society. I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity for reflection and development, and I am grateful to the Clore Duffield Foundation for their support of my 2021 Duffield Fellowship.”

Dr Jessica Gardner, University Librarian and Director of Library Services, said: “We are delighted that Laura will be part of this year’s prestigious Clore Fellowship Programme. This is a testament to her exceptional leadership and will benefit both her and the External Engagement programmes we are developing at Cambridge University Libraries to connect communities, research and collections.”

Clore Fellows are chosen for their leadership ambitions and potential, creativity and vision. The Duffield Fellowships, funded by Close Leadership founders the Close Duffield Foundation, support leaders in medium to large-scale cultural institutions of 200-plus staff in the UK.

Hilary Carty, Director of Clore Leadership, said, “We are delighted to welcome the 2021 Clore Fellows, a group that have undergone a rigorous application process and hugely impressed us, not only with their creativity, spark and attentiveness to current issues, but with the originality of their ideas and vision for the sector.”
