New Sector in the News
I sought to deepen my understanding of social enterprise as a sustainable, community-based means of influencing economic and social growth. Through applying to the RISE fellowship, I was looking to build my exposure by working in formal, social sector settings while actively promoting skill-building, mentorship, and effective networking. In addition, by utilizing the resources provided to me by the RISE Fellowship, I hoped to strengthen my credentials to work in the social sector in the future. I looked forward to the opportunity to connect with workshop speakers, many of whom were forerunners in their fields, including entrepreneurship, data visualization, branding, and more. – Parthu Kalva

Each fellow has their own host site placement, but we are able to come together weekly to discuss, learn and problem-solve any challenges we are experiencing with our projects or in regards to professional development. Each individual has unique experiences and backgrounds, yet we are united by a common passion for social change.
