Fellows are participants in the GCI Fellowship.
They are outstanding and engaged global citizens from around the world with an innate commitment to build a better tomorrow and catalyze positive change.
"GCI cultivates a diverse community of global leaders who can, together and in collaboration with others, meaningfully advance inclusion, freedom, and justice for all, and tackle the challenges brought about by globalization, as identified in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. This is important work because we need, urgently, more leaders like these."
