Designed specifically for mid-senior leaders in social change, the Aotearoa Fellowship will super-charge your skills and energy, help you gain further confidence as a social change leader, and connect you with a community of your peers from across Aotearoa.

Over two cohorts in 2016 and 2017, 40 fellows have completed the fellowship in New Zealand, from organisations such as Hāpai Te Hauora, Amnesty International, Mapu Maia (Pacific Arm of the Problem Gambling Foundation), 350 Aotearoa, the Public Service Association, the Blind Foundation, ActionStation, Safe, JustSpeak and the National Council of Women.

In 2017, NZ fellows were joined by five fellows from Australia, and the program remains open to Australians based outside Sydney and Melbourne. We look forward to welcoming a new cohort in 2019!
