Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity

The Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity is a new program to train a new generation of leaders committed to tackling social disadvantage in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. The Fellowship program is driven by a US$50 million grant from US-based Atlantic Philanthropies, with an additional AUD$160 million in additional contributions and in kind support from the Australian Government and other partner organisations.

The program will be the sixth in what is a global network of leadership development programs known collectively as the Atlantic Fellows. It seeks to build capacity and enhance the capability of a new generation of Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders committed to advancing a fairer, healthier, more resilient and inclusive society. Fellows will be mid-career, emerging leaders who are committed to using their positions to push for social change.
