At the Atlantic Institute we are committed to building a lifelong community of courageous changemakers who together will accelerate the eradication of inequity and injustice resulting in fairer, healthier and more inclusive societies. Our Fellows and Staff are accomplished leaders working in diverse settings and contexts, who together think, learn, incubate and implement strategies for greater impact. The diversity of our fellows is unprecedented and we are committed to the radical inclusion of these leaders as agents of change in communities most impacted by social, economic, racial and health inequities.  We provide them with the networks, architecture and resources to connect, learn and act to address the underlying systemic causes of inequity.

In the current global environment of a pandemic, the courageous work to eradicate inequities is more urgently needed than ever. To support, deepen and sustain our community’s impact at this critical juncture, we have therefore created several new permanent roles, including:

  • Associate Executive Director (Community, Programming and Impact)
  • Augmented and Virtual Realities Lead                                      
  • Program and Impact Lead (Innovation and Special Projects)
  • Learning and Evaluation Lead
  • Data Insight Analyst.
