Yale’s Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program has named its 2022 class of World Fellows. These 16 individuals include global leaders working in government, the environment, technology, journalism, international development, and the arts — from China to Uruguay, from Belarus to South Africa. This cohort brings the total number of World Fellows since the program’s start in 2002 to nearly 400 Fellows, representing 94 countries.
The World Fellows program is Yale University’s signature global leadership development initiative and a core element of Yale’s ongoing commitment to internationalism. Each year, the University selects 16 individuals from a highly competitive applicant pool for an intensive four-month period of academic enrichment and leadership training.
“In a time of conflict and volatility, there is an urgent need for leaders around the world who are committed to making the world more peaceful and just,” said Emma Sky, director of the International Leadership Center at Yale. “The 2022 World Fellows exemplify the kind of innovative and adaptive leadership that is needed in today’s world. They are tackling some of the biggest issues facing the world today with creative and disruptive thinking, doing their part to improve society, and motivating others to do the same. I am thrilled to welcome them to Yale where they will deepen their knowledge and skills while inspiring the next generation of leaders.”
