Frequently Asked Questions 

 

  • Who can access the Ashoka Fellow Directory? 

The Ashoka Fellow Directory is an exclusive tool for the Fellow Community. Only Fellows and Ashoka staff can view the information featured. 

 

  • What is the difference between the Ashoka Fellow Directory and the Search page on Ashoka.org? 

While you can search for Fellows on Ashoka.org, as a private tool, the Directory allows you to see their contact details so you can get in touch directly. Additionally, you will be able to find Fellow recommendations based on your field and location, as well as view Fellows who are actively seeking collaboration.  

Through the Directory, you can manage your information to tailor the marketing of your profile. Update your contact details, add information about your most recent work, and share a proposal or an ask so other Fellows know what you are looking for. The changes you make will be automatically saved to Ashoka’s database, making it easier for us to stay in touch and share relevant opportunities with you! Some edits, such as your location and fields of work, will also update your public profile on Ashoka.org.  

 

  • How do I sign in?  

If you are a Fellow, go to fellows.ashoka.org and enter your email to log in with a unique code. Follow the instructions on the screen to update your profile and settings. That’s it! No need to set up an account or a password. Follow the steps on the screen to update your information and you’re set to start navigating. You can always go back to edit your profile and settings.  

 

  • I am having trouble signing in. 

If you’re unable to sign in, here are some of the common reasons:  

- We do not have your preferred email address on file. Your account is linked to the email address on our database, so if it is not up to date, you will not be able to use the Ashoka Fellow Directory. Please reach out to your country rep to update your preferred email address. 

- You have not completed the Fellow Onboarding process. All new Fellows are required to sign the Conditions of Association (COA). This document enables full access to the Ashoka network, including your Directory account.  If you have not signed the COA yet, please reach out to your country rep to find out more. 

If the issue persists, please contact us at: [email protected].  

 

  • Who will be able to see my information? 

Only Fellows with access to the Directory and Ashoka staff will be able to see your full profile information. By default, your Directory profile will show a summary from your Ashoka.org profile and your email address. Once you sign in to your account you will be able to update this information and add contact options.  

You can choose to keep some of your contact details private. For example, you can add a phone number so we can update our database, but hide it from Fellows on the Directory. At least one contact option must remain visible to other Fellows so they can get in touch with you.  

Only the following information will be publicly visible on your Ashoka.org profile: profile picture, location (city and country), organization name and website, and social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn).

To find out more about how the Fellow Directory uses your data, you can read Ashoka’s Privacy Policy. If you would like us to remove your profile, please fill in this form. You will no longer be visible to other Fellows and you will automatically lose access to the Directory. 

 

  • I have updated my profile, now what? 

Congratulations! You’re ready to start connecting. Navigate the dashboard to find Fellow recommendations, or use the Search bar to look for key words. You can also use the Advanced Filter options to narrow your search by location and field(s) of work. Select Fellows to display their full profile. Tip: Click on “Status” to filter Fellows who are actively seeking collaboration. 

 

  • How can I contact Fellows through the Directory? 

Once you have found a profile that you are interested in, click on “Save” to add the Fellow to your Contact List or click “Contact” to see their contact options. After you select a contact option, you will be automatically redirected to a third-party platform (e.g. Email, LinkedIn, WhatsApp) where you can start the conversation. Tip: Copy your respective Country Representatives so they can support you with follow-ups, translation, and general guidance! Not sure who they are? Email us at [email protected]

 

  • How do I change the Directory’s language? 

Follow these steps to change your language preferences: 

  1. Open Menu > select Settings  

  1. Select Account > change your Language  

We want to make sure that the Fellow Directory reflects the diversity of our community. Can’t find your language? Get in touch with us at: [email protected].
