Over the past few weeks, we have been especially focused on building this global network. From Spain to Stockholm to Sao Paolo, our staff and Fellows have traveled and engaged in conversations, shared their perspective, and enlightened us with these new ideas. In addition, our newly formed Selection Board of volunteers from around the world more than doubled the capacity of our Recruitment Team to review the high volume of applications. The Selection Board also demonstrates a unified commitment to global service and leadership development. They invest their time as volunteers to help us identify the outstanding applicants that we can send to our potential Host Organizations.
