The first global cohort of Atlantic Fellows includes activists, artists, journalists, health professionals and policymakers collaborating across the globe to build a healthier, fairer future.
A campaigner for gender equality and social inclusion from Nepal for women and Dalit community, a Belfast-based human rights champion, and a Chilean feminist policymaker and activist are among the new cohort of 20 Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity at LSE’s International Inequalities Institute.
Atlantic Fellow for Social Equity Leanne Miller’s dream is starting to take shape. She wants to enable Indigenous women to form a collective voice as they produce and successfully market Australian native bush food and botanicals that remains true to their traditional origin and contributes to people’s wellbeing.
In an address to the Australian House of Representatives earlier this week on a report on “Indigenous health, education and other life outcomes,” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull commented that the nation needs to “design solutions to local problems,” adding, “That’s why we are committed to the Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity Program.”
