Claire M Fallender
Director, Global LeadYoung Initiative
Claire leads Ashoka’s Global LeadYoung Initiative, a storytelling campaign that creates awareness and social demand for the new definition of what constitutes success in growing up—every teen knowing they are a changemaker—and the framework for getting there. In this role, Claire draws from her expertise in social entrepreneurship to build and cultivate teams, establish strategic partnerships, and develop key content for Ashoka’s framework change efforts around young people. Previously, Claire served as Director for Global Venture and Fellowship, Ashoka’s largest program that identifies and supports leading social entrepreneurs around the world. Claire holds a Master of Public Affairs from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University and a B.A. from Yale College.
