Class of 2011

Class of 2011

This 2011 World Fellows include an executive at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange; a director at the World Economic Forum; the editor of Mint Money, India’s second-largest business newspaper; the director of the World Health Organization’s tuberculosis control program in China; a policymaker in Afghanistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and the executive director of Greenpeace Brazil.

“We received more than twice as many nominations this year than ever before, evidence of the growing reputation and global awareness of this unique opportunity for leadership development,” said the program’s director, Dr. Michael Cappello, professor of pediatrics at the Yale School of Medicine. “The 2011 fellows were carefully selected from an incredibly deep and talented pool of international leaders. We are delighted to welcome them to Yale.”

“This is an extraordinary group of men and women,” said President Richard C. Levin. “We are so fortunate to have them here, and I am confident they will all gain tremendously from their interactions with the Yale community.”
