Meet the Fellows

The d.school reformatted its fellows program in 2012, launching a creative leadership accelerator for early- and mid-career professionals with a specific challenge in their domains and the savvy to make it real. This marks the second year of the program in its new incarnation, and the class has more than doubled, from four fellows to nine.

This year’s cohort is comprised of individuals working in a variety of ways to invent, disrupt and innovate in and around complex social systems. These professionals hail from a broad range of sectors, including K-12 education, law, federal and municipal government, the military, disaster relief, mobile platform development, grant making and financial services. They are participating in an immersive, 10-month experience to develop and launch their ¬†initiatives using the resources of the d.school, Stanford and the Silicon Valley community.
