The Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is thrilled to announce the 2017-19 Fellows have been chosen for the next Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program. These 12 young leaders will be joining an inspiring community of Sauvé Fellows around the world.

Starting in summer 2017, these young changemakers will embark on a unique public leadership journey focused on a timely theme: The Inclusion Imperative. This international, interdisciplinary group will work together to find public leadership strategies to help culturally diverse societies thrive.

With backgrounds in the arts, advocacy, communications, education, foreign affairs, governance, human rights, journalism, law, politics, social innovation and other fields, our new Fellows will refine their leadership skills to take on some of our world’s most intractable challenges.

Over the course of the residential period of the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program, our incoming Fellows will look at inclusion through the lens of four pressing challenges facing culturally diverse societies: root causes of conflict, radicalization, violence prevention and post-conflict reconciliation. Together, they will ask tough questions and take bold action to re-imagine the role of public leadership in supporting inclusion and social cohesion within diverse societies.

We look forward to officially introducing our new cohort of inspiring young leaders in the coming months.

Once again, a warm thank you to the hundreds of qualified individuals who applied to 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program. We sincerely hope that you will find other opportunities to pursue your important vision of change, and that you will continue to be leaders in your fields.
