ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
“I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow as I will not only have the ability to share an important issue that I am incredibly passionate about with others, but also will have the opportunity and proper setting to hear about other critical issues that may need support. I am eager to be provided with a network of like minded peers who will be willing to discuss identifiable actions to ensure that initiatives supporting our values are properly supported.”

Catfight or Contention: An Analysis of the Presence of Implicit Gender Bias in the Classification and Perception of Organizational Conflict
Summary: In my research I will be analyzing possible unconscious gender biases in the perception of the organizational conflict and determining if there are resulting downstream consequences contributing to gendered dynamics in the workplace.
Goals: Within the next month, I hope to distribute my survey to over 500 people. After receiving the results, I will analyze the responses to detect if there is a correlation between participants' classification of organizational conflict and gender. I hope to then include this information in a paper to possibly be published in a journal about conflict resolution in the workplace. My aim is that this paper be distributed and read to enlighten the populace about gender discrepancies in the manifestation of workplace conflict.
