Fellowship Class of 2014-2016

ZERO TO THREE proudly presents the 2014-2016 Fellowship Class!

The 10 Fellows were selected through a rigorous selection process from a pool of 170 applicants. These experienced professionals come from a diversity of disciplines, sectors, backgrounds, and geographic locations.

They bring to the fellowship the passion, will, and influence to advance change in programs, systems, and policies that positively impact the well-being of infants, toddlers, and their families. Each Fellow has a specific vision for change in their professional context that will be accomplished through innovative thinking, collaboration, and partnerships across roles, disciplines, and sectors. The fellowship experience will provide a diversity of opportunities for the Fellows to grow professionally and personally by expanding their knowledge, strengthening skills, broadening their perspective, and establishing lifelong, rewarding relationships.
