Global Social: 2024 Mandela Washington Fellows

July 10 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$10 – $20

Meet the University of Minnesota’s 2024 cohort of Mandela Washington Fellows! The Mandela Washington Fellowship is a nationwide program that brings young leaders from across Africa to the United States for academic and leadership training. The Fellows enrich their U.S. host communities through public service, cultural exchange, and the lasting personal ties they create during their program. They are working on projects related to climate sustainability, disability rights, health and wellness programming, and teaching to name just a few.
Network with the next generation of leaders over light appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages. We’ll also have fun Minnesota-themed trivia and hear from some of the Fellows regarding their experience in Minnesota and their professional trajectory. This year’s cohort is made up of 25 young leaders from 19 different countries, including Angola, Benin, Djibouti, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Mali, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Zambia.
