Women Faith Leaders Fellowship 2023-2024 Cohort

Leaders: Olivia Wilkinson Katherine Marshall Luisa Boyarski Gabrielle Matlock

The pilot phase of the Women Faith Leaders Fellowship, hosted by the Joint Learning Initiative on Faith and Local Communities in partnership with Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and Center for Public and Nonprofit Leadership, included an initial cohort of 10 sisters from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania. Fellows elevated their leadership skills through a variety of interactions with leading policymakers and scholars. These included professional exchanges on their fellowship focus areas (for example health and education), as well as issues around financing, partnerships, fundraising, advancing equity, storytelling, strategic communications, and networking.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Joint Learning Initiative, Berkley Center, and the Center for Public and Nonprofit Leadership collaborated in the design and delivery of the fellowship. Funding was provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
