Acumen's Global Fellows Program for Social Impact Leaders

Posted by Gamuchirai on November 13, 2013 at 12:35 AM

Deadline: 13 December 2013

cumen has launched the Global Fellows Program – a fellowship program for selected fellows to undertake intensive leadership training in New York, USA and in South Asia and Africa. This is a learning opportunity for those individuals “dedicated to serving the poor and who have the business and operational expertise, and moral imagination needed to effect long-term social change. The fellowship begins with an eight-week training program in the Acumen New York office, where Fellows learn about business models for the poor, hone their leadership skills, and learn more about Acumen.”


After training, each Fellow works for the CEO or senior management of an Acumen investee on a critical business issue facing the organization.


Applications for the Global Fellowship are highly competitive. While our Fellows have diverse backgrounds and each brings a unique skill set to the Fellowship, we have identified some key traits:


Demonstrated passion and commitment to creating positive social change

Strong business experience – such as finance, operations, or consulting

Proven track record of leadership and management responsibilities

Experience living and working in emerging markets

Unrelenting perseverance, moral fiber, and critical thinking skills

A minimum of 3-5 years of work experience
