In these times of intense polarization, passivity and despair, we need fresh minds and responsible hearts to reframe societal discourses and to find solutions to the challenges we face.
Our Fellows and Senior Fellows are singularly qualified to be powerful agents of change. We are convinced that their leadership can steer policy discussions and activism in directions that are democratic, inclusive, and sustainable in the long run.
Our community’s rich and diverse perspectives and skills demonstrate a nuanced ingenuity that many of today’s leaders are often sorely missing.
We are invested in assisting our Fellows and Senior Fellows to develop their leadership skills and invest in programs that make that possible.
