Our 2018-2019 Encore Public Voices Fellows

We are thrilled to announce the twenty leaders in the inaugural cohort of this special fellowship. This cohort brings together leading thinkers who are working at the intersection of aging, longevity and social justice (racial, gender, economic and beyond). Participants will be provided with extraordinary support, skills and mentoring to ensure their ideas shape the greater public conversation. The Encore Public Voices fellowship is a collaboration among Encore.org, The OpEd Project, and Ann MacDougall. 
  • The OpEd Project is a think tank and leadership organization that expands history by accelerating the ideas and public impact of underrepresented voices, including women.
  • Ann MacDougall, the former president of Encore.org, will serve as a senior advisor to the Encore Public Voices Fellowship.
  • Our Advisory Council is comprised of a small group of outstanding social innovators and media professionals. Founding members are Ellen Goodman (Chair); Mary C. CurtisKatie OrensteinTrabian ShortersSree SreenivasanKen Dychtwald, and Lester Strong. They will advise on strategy, recruitment of candidates and fellow selection and will potentially participate in training.
