ADL and Aspen Institute Announce Inaugural Class of the Civil Society Fellowship
New York, NY, September 10, 2019 … ADL (Anti-Defamation League) and the Aspen Institute today announced the inaugural class of the Civil Society Fellowship: A Partnership of ADL and the Aspen Institute. This new Fellowship, part of the Aspen Global Leadership Network, aims to prepare and engage the next generation of community and civic leaders, activists and problem solvers from across the political spectrum.
The 23 inaugural Fellows, selected from a pool of over 200 nominees from across the country, are journalists, entrepreneurs, government officials, lawyers, educators and designers. They work for nonprofits, private industry and in law enforcement. All are proven leaders with a broad array of concerns who have reached an inflection point in their lives where they are ready to apply their talent and skills to build a more civil society. A more civil society requires the participation and mutual understanding of all, regardless of political affiliation. The Fellowship is intended to ground this group of Fellows, all between the ages of 25 and 45, with a foundation to work toward a more civil society and discourse. The inaugural cohort reflects a diverse mosaic representing a broad geographical, political and ideological swath of the United States.
Civil Society Fellows will spend five weeks over the course of two and a half years in structured retreat – exploring their leadership, core values and visions for a more free, just and equitable society, as well as their desired legacies. Seminars created in text-based dialogue and experiential engagement will take place in Aspen, CO, Washington DC, Europe, the Middle East, and culminate in the southern United States to explore how issues of freedom, security, liberty and diversity play out in different contexts.
