The Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity aim to tackle the challenge of persistent inequality and social exclusion in Australia and the Pacific, particularly among Indigenous communities.

Fellows are passionate leaders from diverse backgrounds who can drive social change in partnership with their communities.

Fellows will build on their knowledge of traditions, culture and leadership to achieve social equity for communities through innovation, access to health care and education, opportunity for employment and ability to earn a fair income.
