Atlas Corps Fellow speaks at Social Good Summit
Thank you! With your support, Atlas Corps has achieved some major milestones in the past three weeks.
Three weeks ago, we welcomed Atlas Corps Class 19—our largest group of Fellows ever at 33. Two weeks ago, we invited all of our Fellows to Washington, DC, for our Global Leadership Lab in partnership with Deloitte—85 Fellows in one room at one time. One week ago, we celebrated the year anniversary of the launch of the Emergin Global Leadership Initiative-Atlas Corps Fellowship as I traveled with a delegation of Atlas Corps Fellows to New York for the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), Social Good Summit, and United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
At the Social Good Summit, Atlas Corps Fellow Marcela Calle (Class 18, Colombia, Host: Internews), pictured with other panelists Ben Rhodes of The White House, Danny Sriskandarajah of Civicus, and Douglas Rutzen of International Center for Not-for-Profit Law, shared her perspectives on the “Combating Closing Spaces for Civil Society” panel.
In addition, 14 other Atlas Corps Fellows actively promoted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by providing multilingual social media coverage of the event. “It was very valuable to be a part of the team of communicators who amplified the 17 Sustainable Development Goals throughout the Summit at this crucial moment in history,” shared Fellow Esther Pinnock (Class 17, Jamaica, Host: Atlas Corps). “The many speakers expressed hope amidst many global crises. As Atlas Corps Fellows, it was an honor to share this message of hope to inspire others to take action. It was also impressive to see Marcela as a featured speaker!”
It was amazing! The annual event, held in tandem with the UN General Assembly, incorporates the voices and points of view from major influencers around the world to focus on the biggest global issues of the day. We are thrilled to be a part of it.
Thank you for support our newest Fellows AND in providing Fellows the opportunity to share their perspectives with a global audience.
Together, we are making an impact!
