StartingBloc Fellowship selects Gonzalez
Jessica Gonzalez, current program manager with Dress for Success Phoenix, was recently accepted into the StartingBloc Fellowship, an organization that has been training the next generation of leaders from around the world since 2005. Through the StartingBloc Fellowship, young leaders are selected through a competitive application process and provided with access to resources to address today’s most pressing global challenges. The Fellowship begins with the Institute for Social Innovation, a five-day experience that presents a social innovation case challenge, as well as sessions with industry leaders. Upon completing the Institute, new Fellows join the global network of 1,800 StartingBloc Fellows from over 55 countries and more than 221 universities. Over the years, StartingBloc Fellows have launched their own organizations to continue to effect social change of global import.
