The 2020 Fellows

Two is Better Than One A Fuller Picture of the Potential

The inspiring set of leaders who applied to the be a part of the inaugural cohort compelled us to re-examine the opportunity presented to all of us as we select the Castanea Fellows. The breadth and depth of the applicants, time dedicated towards the process, ability to honor the fuller diversity presented in the candidate pool, and opportunity to showcase a broader set of leaders to exemplify Castanea Fellows led us to proposing two cohorts: a 2019 and 2020 cohort.

We also recognize that we still have more sectors, voices, and experiences to include and look forward to doing that with the future cohorts.
