The Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity (AFRE) is a network of change-makers from South Africa and the United States, building solidarity and action for a more equitable future.
Through leadership development, community building, design labs and narrative change, AFRE supports the personal development and capacity of leaders, and catalyses broader social change activity, based on a view that both are required to achieve racial equity.
The Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity (AFRE) programme is based at Columbia University in New York City, in the United States; and the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg, in South Africa.
Each year, it recruits 20 high-impact leaders from South Africa and the United States to participate in an immersive, dialogue-based fellowship program.
Fellows participate in virtual and in-person sessions through which they share experiences, build connections and networks, and create and test new strategies for social change.
Fellows also develop projects whilst receiving a stipend, individualised coaching and other supports to enhance their development.
The deadline is on Wednesday 20th January 2021.
The programme is open to individuals who are committed to achieving equity, have a track record of significant impact, and deeply value dialogue with, and learning from, diverse perspectives and voices as a critical step towards achieving societal transformation.
There are no academic qualifications required to apply.
Candidates should be experienced in their field of work with a track record of impact in furthering racial equity.
