Imagine a country where social problems don’t outrun solutions and where all Americans participate in social change, no matter who they are or where they’re from. This is what we’re working toward.
Our network of 3,000+ Ashoka Fellows stretches across 93 countries, including 200+ working here in the US. We are proud of the breadth and span of our Fellowship. But we realized through an internal analysis of our Fellows in the US, that the majority live and work in only four cities: Boston, NYC, Washington D.C. and the Bay Area and have similar demographic profiles. We acknowledge that as an organization we have struggled to incorporate the rich ethnic, racial, geographical and gender diversity America offers into our social change landscape.
We’re committed to changing this picture.
