Feedback Labs have announced their 2019-2020 cohort of Feedback Fellows and our own Doussouba Konaté, Head of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning at Accountability Lab Mali, is part of the diverse group which includes inspiring young change-makers from across the world.

What does it mean to be a Feedback Fellow? It means putting people at the center of your work and listening to their needs. It means having a thirst to learn and grow, and a desire to bring your feedback practice to the next level. It means being ambitious, curious, and maybe even a little nervous.

This November, we had our first meeting with all of the 2019-2020 Feedback Fellows, and the call was buzzing with excitement. Fellows called in from all over the world – from Mali, Yemen, México, USA, Afghanistan, South Africa, Uganda, Bali, and Colombia.

Though all of the 2019-2020 Feedback Fellows represent different organizations with different goals in diverse locations across the globe, they all share the same underlying belief in feedback.

They work on issues spanning humanitarian disaster response to girls education to HIV/AIDS and many more. They have all proven their drive, ambition, and commitment to putting people at the center of their work, whether they are supporting young women in the juvenile justice system in Florida or promoting human rights and addressing ethnic conflict in Afghanistan. We are proud to introduce them today. Together, they are a powerful force to be reckoned with.

We are so excited to collaborate and learn with the Global Giving and Siegel Family Endowment Feedback Fellows in 2020. With their diverse backgrounds, interests and skills, they are on the fast track to meaningful connection and change. Please give them a warm welcome.
