Technical Tracks

Connections Matter

Fostering community and networks among fellows during and after programming, and within and across fellowship programs

Sessions may include discussions about strategies for

  • building and maintaining a successful alumni community,
  • using virtual or offline platforms for fostering community, or
  • measuring and tracking the role of networks in producing outcomes at the community level (e.g., through social network analysis).

The Diversity Dividend

Building programs and strengthening leaders to promote equity and inclusivity

Sessions may include discussions about

  • recruiting and attracting diverse candidates to fellowship programs,
  • ensuring that programming accommodates differing abilities, diverse learning styles, and backgrounds,
  • addressing bias or prejudice at the individual, institutional, and system level, or
  • sharing lessons from working with underrepresented communities or from working in closing or conflict spaces.

Answering the “So What?”

Adapting and modeling a learning mindset within programs for greater effectiveness and impact

Sessions may include discussions about

  • measuring the short- and long-term impact of fellowship programming,
  • using monitoring and evaluation results to inform program adaptation,
  • engaging communities in learning and adapting, or
  • applying technologies to foster better learning outcomes for fellows and integrate data-driven decision making into program management and content.
