Join changemakers from around the world for a 2-day immersive training and cohort-building session to explore your personal and professional drivers, develop skills in design thinking and social entrepreneurship, and build your individualized action plan for your Fellowship. With your cohort, use the next 6 months to keep learning, growing, and doing. While you'll each complete your own social impact projects, you'll be able to virtually support each other in the field and grow together along the way.
Throughout the Fellowship — designed to support you regardless of where you are from — you'll learn the theory behind leading Social Impact Frameworks like Social Enterprise Thinking, Human-Centered Design, Systems Mapping, Behavioral Economics, Impact investing, and more. You'll stay engaged with weekly coaching calls, monthly webinars with industry leaders, and collaborative case-based learning projects through our online community.
Through our partnership with Aperian Global®, Fellows will have access to GlobeSmart®, an online resource designed to help you become more effective in a cross-cultural work environment. You’ll learn about your own unique working style, identify potential challenges between styles as you prepare to apply your skills in a new context, and get advice and concrete strategies to pave the way for a successful project that builds your cross-cultural leadership skills and creates a sustainable impact.
Fellows can propose their own project, get coaching from MovingWorlds to design a new one, or take advantage of our Experteering platform to find a verified project with a social enterprise virtually, locally, or abroad. Whether you are looking to launch an intrapreneurship initiative within your organization, experiment with your own social enterprise, or gain the experience to transition into a new career, we'll guide you to and through a project that will help you build your resume, leadership skills, and overall confidence!
After your social impact project, we will help you highlight the impact you made and skills you gained in a capstone presentation, public-facing article, and/or on LinkedIn. Your peers and MWI staff will help you turn your experience into a case-study worthy piece of content that will help you build the case for whatever comes next, whether that is a promotion, career change, or new venture.
Throughout the program, you will also get connected to the MovingWorlds alumni community and Global Network of social enterprises, impact investors, and changemakers around the world.
The Fellowship provides an array of learning opportunities — live virtual training, on-demand content, case-based workshops, your social impact project, personal reflection, mentorship, and more — and our learning management system, as well as our personal learning workbooks and guides, help you make the most of your experience. Customized for you and your unique schedule, these tools will guide you through the Fellowship experience in a way that works best for you and your unique goals.
We literally wrote the guide on mentorship, published in Harvard Business Review here. In addition to prominent guest speakers, we provide guidance and support to help you connect with a mission-aligned mentor who can help you learn, grow, and make an even bigger impact.
Over the course of the Fellowship, you can access training, workshops, guides, and personalized feedback to help you optimize your LinkedIn profile, resume, and professional story so you can move confidently into interviews, new jobs, or even your own enterprise.
Through our strategic partnership with Imperative, each participant will have their Individual Purpose Diagnostic taken and assessed for them - a tool usually only reserved for qualified companies and teams. The findings from this assessment will help you choose the right social impact project, mentor, and career path to become more fulfilled by aligning your work with your unique purpose drivers.
