Impactful Highlights

v The Ash Center at Harvard Kennedy School recently launched a Technology and Democracy Fellowship – which welcomes mid-career practitioners with an interest in leveraging technology to improve democratic governance. Over the course of the fellowship, participants design, develop, or refine a substantive project that is salient to their field. This project could entail research, writing, and developing strategy relating to each fellow’s work, or could take the form of a new platform, service, app, or idea. These fellowships are unpaid and non-resident, so Fellows are not expected to reside or work locally. Learn more here: http://ash.harvard.edu/technology-and-democracy-fellowship

 

v The New Politics Leadership Academy is thrilled to announce the launch of our next round of Answering the Call – its proven program focused on recruiting servant leaders to become more politically engaged. It’s not a traditional training or a motivational seminar; rather, it’s a four-session small-group reflective learning journey in which participants are invited to achieve clarity within themselves about whether they feel called to pursue public office. NP’s Spring Cohort will run from mid-April through mid-May. To learn more about the experience, check out this Huffington Post blog, Glimpsing a Politics That Works.

v Exposure Labs is the team behind the Academy Award-nominated film Chasing Ice. Founded by Director Jeff Orlowski in 2009, Exposure Labs is dedicated to impact through film, and strives to tackle projects of environmental, social, and political importance. They are currently looking to fill several roles on their impact team for our latest feature film, Chasing Coral. Premiering at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and taking home the Audience Award, the film continues the conversation begun with Chasing Ice, shifting focus to one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet: coral reefs. Their campaign aims to make a big splash (pun intended!) and capture the opportunity around Chasing Coral’s worldwide release on Netflix. With the film at the center, our goal is to strengthen local movements advancing climate solutions across the United States. Learn more here: http://www.chasingcoral.com/careers/
