The 2012 World Fellows include an executive with China Construction Bank; a British military officer who served in command and staff appointments in Afghanistan; an Algerian private equity entrepreneur; a former Argentine minister of economy; and a women’s empowerment activist in India.
“We are thrilled once again to welcome an outstanding group of World Fellows to Yale,” said Dr. Michael Cappello, director of the program and professor of pediatrics at Yale School of Medicine. “The 2012 fellows were selected from a global pool representing thousands of innovative difference makers. We are proud to offer them this unique opportunity to develop their leadership skills while enriching the Yale community through active participation in campus life.”
“We are so fortunate to have these extraordinary men and women at Yale,” said Yale President Richard C. Levin. “The University community is always so enriched by the World Fellows. We hope they take full advantage of all our community has to offer them.”
