Diversity of Thought: Atlas Corps Fellows Program

The Council, in partnership with Atlas Corps and American Express, will share information on the Atlas Corps Fellows Program. Atlas Corps facilitates overseas fellowships for the best of the world's rising leaders. They volunteer for 12-18 months at outstanding organizations (foundations, corporations and nonprofits) addressing social issues and are enrolled in an ongoing training program.

Atlas Corps provides an opportunity for the host organizations to benefit from the diverse experiences and perspectives of the Fellows. Annually 15,000 people apply for about 100 positions and over the last 12 years Atlas Corps has placed 600 leaders from 88 different countries at many of the world's leading organizations including American Express, Council on Foundation, AirBnB, American Red Cross, IBM, Microsoft, Nestle, Nike Foundation, Points of Light, Save the Children, UN Foundation, and many more.  

Join us for a discussion with several host organizations and their fellows to learn more about this exciting opportunity.
