Seven Programs. One Common Purpose: Equity.

While each of the seven Atlantic Fellows programs is distinct and grounded in its local context, they share a common purpose of advancing fairer, healthier, more inclusive societies. All programs start with a core fellowship experience, bringing together a cohort of 20 to 30 emerging leaders. Fellows are typically early- to mid-career professionals from a range of backgrounds, disciplines and life experiences who share a passion, determination and vision to realize a more just world.

Through the global, interconnected programs, Fellows collaborate across disciplines and borders to understand and address root causes of pressing problems.

A Global Community for a Better World

Support for a New Generation of Leaders

The Atlantic Institute amplifies the impact of the network of Atlantic Fellows programs, and helps promote lifelong community among its Fellows. 

 The Narrative Initiative is a training and networking resource for Atlantic Fellows, social change leaders and organizations. The Initiative will develop Fellows’ understanding and capacity to use culture, language and stories that move hearts and minds.
