COMMUNITY AND SUPPORt FOR A NEW GENERATION OF LEADERS

The Atlantic Fellows program is built on the idea that achieving fairer, healthier, more inclusive societies requires leaders with diverse perspectives to collaborate on solutions and learn from one another.  

The Atlantic Institute connects the six Atlantic Fellows programs, building a global community of courageous leaders who inspire positive change. 

 The Atlantic Institute is based at the Rhodes Trust in Oxford.
