Acumen is excited to introduce you to our largest and most geographically diverse cohort of Fellows ever. They are 156 leaders with the character and determination to drive transformative change across the globe.

This year we’re excited to introduce Fellows from our new programs in Bangladesh, Spain, and Malaysia and the latest cohorts of East Africa, India, and West Africa Fellows. From building a legal defense for stateless women in Malaysia to improving food security in South Sudan to scaling an affordable daycare program across Kenya, there’s no challenge too big for the 2020 Fellows.

Over the course of the first Fellowship year, the 2020 Fellows will continue to drive change in their communities while taking part in a series of seminars and online coursework designed to catalyze their roles as leaders with moral conviction and to build a community of support for their next journeys as change makers.

Meet the 2020 Fellows and discover the big ideas they’re catalyzing across the globe.
