" I am excited to have the honor of being a Millennium Fellow because it gives me the ability to work with an incredibly diverse group of individuals who are all working towards the goal of making the world a better place. This Fellowship will expose me to perspectives previously unknown to me while allowing me to develop skills that I will utilize throughout my career. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Optimizing Impact through Virtual Gatherings
The COVID-19 outbreak has forced many institutions' educational, business, government, and more to operate in a virtual capacity. While the world adheres to social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders, conferences, commencements, summits, and other knowledge sharing opportunities are now forced to happen over the Internet. Rather than accept that coronavirus will hamper our ongoing endeavors and welcome poorer outcomes, the Fellows aim to create a comprehensive guide for social impact organizations to host effective virtual gatherings. By researching best practices, gauging capacity, and learning from successful endeavors, the team of Fellows will position organizations to thrive in virtual events, taking advantage of unique opportunities available in the virtual space. In doing so, these organizations can build their own capacity to advance progress toward Sustainable Development Goals.
