Meet the World Fellows

They are trailblazers: disruptive thinkers and bold, original voices in their fields. They are mid-career practitioners, from all sectors, poised for the next step. They are intensely curious, passionate and keenly focused on positive impact. They can’t help themselves: wherever they go, they profoundly shape their surroundings for the better. They are entrepreneurs, activists, journalists, artists, and politicians. They are doctors, lawyers, soldiers, artists and business executives. They are the World Fellows.
