Please join me in congratulating the magnificent leaders in the inaugural cohort of the Billions Institute Fellowship for Leading Large-Scale Change! These leaders are spreading solutions to racial inequity, infant mortality, illiteracy, housing insecurity, youth homelessness, gun violence, childhood trauma, ageism, and last but certainly not least, math anxiety. Their work is bold, inspiring and at the forefront of advancing social justice and social change. We feel very honored to be alongside them on their journey.
Going forward, we will be doing deep dives together to grow our confidence in leading for racial equity and social justice, communicating authentically in a way that motivates others, and exploring some of the “many ways to many” that we just touch upon at the Skid Row School. The fellows will meet three times a year for two years, each February, May, and September. We will allow new fellows to join the fellowship on a rolling admissions basis starting when we meet again next May 15th – 17th. We’re currently accepting applications for leaders to join the two-year fellowship starting in May 2018.
