Omidyar Fellows is a societal change program. We seek to cultivate the conditions in which Hawaii thrives.

Hawaii’s future will be shaped by the ability of its leaders to meet the increasingly complex challenges facing our state. That’s why it’s important to cultivate a community of mid-career leaders and to equip them with the skills and relationships they’ll need to collectively transform Hawaii.

Over a 15-month period, Fellows will participate in a rigorous curriculum that’s designed to build stronger leaders, more effective organizations, and cross-sector connections that are necessary to collectively affect societal change. The program covers all costs for each participant. While the investment is significant, so is the promise of a group of leaders with the skills and experience needed to help lead Hawaii into the future.

Omidyar Fellows is an enduring and ongoing commitment to an active network of leaders and change makers, all of whom are dedicated to making positive movement on Hawaii’s most pressing issues. Fellows also commit to the ongoing development of their leadership and its impact in Hawaii. The cumulative impact of this extraordinary learning opportunity has the promise to be a life changer for Omidyar Fellows and a game changer for the people of Hawaii.
