2009 Tutu Fellow James Mwangi has been selected for the prestigious Maurice R Greenberg World Fellows Program at Yale University. The program enables “extraordinary individuals, from across the globe and from diverse disciplines, to increase their capacity to make the world a better place.” Aside from James, the Class of 2021 includes a Brazilian diplomat, an Israeli journalist, and a British expert in the ethics of artificial intelligence among the 16 women and men selected as 2021 World Fellows.
The cohort brings the total number of World Fellows since the program’s start in 2002 to 375 Fellows, representing 91 countries. The program selects a diverse cohort of World Fellows to spend four months together in residence at Yale University “to grow intellectually, share knowledge, strengthen skills and expand networks.”
