" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I want to help make the world a better place. I am in a fortunate position where I am able to give back to others which I try to do as often as possible. I am also eager to work with like-minded individuals and to broaden my knowledge on the sustainable development goals. "
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.
