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.


Main Criteria

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.
