Benefits for CQ Fellows' Organizations

Most CQ Fellows work inside organizations–F500s, non-profits, universities, or small and midsize companies. There are several ways organizations gain an ROI from CQ Fellows including the CQ Resource (curriculum, course, app, strategy) their fellow develops which may otherwise cost 2-3 times as much if an outside vendor created it.
