Today, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, in collaboration with Atlas Corps, announced the second cohort of the Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureate Virtual Leadership Institute. Fifty Hilton Prize Scholars will participate in a five-month virtual leadership training opportunity that will provide professional development to emerging social change leaders exclusively within the Prize Laureate community. Representing 23 of the 26 Prize Laureate organizations, this cohort includes professionals from 29 countries and with backgrounds ranging from project management and communications to fundraising. These humanitarian leaders serve their communities in the fields of public health, gender equity, economic development, and more.
“We are thrilled to welcome another talented group of leaders into the second cohort of the Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureate Virtual Leadership Institute. As the world’s largest annual humanitarian award presented to nonprofit organizations, we are thrilled to be able to invest in emerging professionals within these Prize Laureate organizations. We look forward to seeing this dynamic network grow and continue to collaborate,” shared Maggie Miller, senior director, Hilton Humanitarian Prize.
The Institute will focus on the three themes of developing self, developing others, and leading movements, while also strengthening connections within the Prize Laureate community. This five-month online program includes interactive workshops, self-led activities, discussion groups, and community-building activities with U.S. organizations and leaders. Participants, also known as Hilton Prize Scholars, will also work on an individual leadership project that benefits the Laureate organization where the Scholar works. In addition to engaging within the Prize Laureate community, Scholars will become members of the broader Atlas Corps Community of more than 1,400 professionals from 115 countries.
“Atlas Corps is honored to collaborate with the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and to welcome another cohort of inspired individuals from the Hilton Prize Laureate community to our global network. Now is the moment when we need to inspire rising global leaders as we prepare them to manage themselves and others through challenging times. This concept is why I am so energized to continue championing leadership development and creating opportunities for emerging talent regardless of physical location,” said Bidjan Nashat, CEO of Atlas Corps.
