Yale World Fellows creates a learning lab: a place to experiment. We bring innovative, multidisciplinary thinkers and doers from around the world to Yale for four months. We give them the space and time to step back from the intensity of their work to reflect, learn and be challenged both academically and personally.  Fellows also contribute greatly to Yale through teaching, collaboration, research and more. After their time at Yale, they go on to join a growing network of more than 250 World Fellows working across the world. They stay connected to the University, and to each other.
 
Who are they? In our annual search for Fellows, we scour the globe for people working innovatively (and often tirelessly) across sectors to bring positive change. Fellows are mid-career. They’re already questioning stale solutions and status quo strategies and coming up with new and better ways of tackling big problems. They’re dynamic, creative practitioners – disruptive thinkers, imaginers, inventors and creatives – who have already been recognized for their work. 
 
So they’re already experts in their fields when they come to us. But leadership is so much more than expertise.

Join the South Asian Business Forum at the Yale School of Management for a conversation with 2014 World Fellows, Nandita Das and Parmesh Shahani. 

With over 40 feature film credits to her name, Nandita is an award-winning Indian film actor and director who has leveraged her international profile to campaign on social issues concerning women, children and marginalized communities. She was the first Indian to be inducted into the International Women’s Forum Hall of Fame for her contributions to the arts. Firaaq, Nandita’s directorial debut feature film, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2008 and has traveled to over 50 festivals and won more than 20 awards.

Parmesh heads the Godrej India Culture Lab, an experimental ideas space in Mumbai working at the intersection of academia, business and the creative industries to explore what it means to be modern and Indian. He also serves as the Editor-at-Large for Verve Magazine India, and is author of the book “Gay Bombay: Globalization, Love and (Be)Longing in Contemporary India.” Parmesh is a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, a TED Fellow, an MIT ‘Futures of Entertainment’ Fellow, and a Utrecht University-Impakt Fellow.

Yale World Fellows creates a learning lab: a place to experiment. We bring innovative, multidisciplinary thinkers and doers from around the world to Yale for four months. We give them the space and time to step back from the intensity of their work to reflect, learn and be challenged both academically and personally.  Fellows also contribute greatly to Yale through teaching, collaboration, research and more. After their time at Yale, they go on to join a growing network of more than 250 World Fellows working across the world. They stay connected to the University, and to each other.
 
Who are they? In our annual search for Fellows, we scour the globe for people working innovatively (and often tirelessly) across sectors to bring positive change. Fellows are mid-career. They’re already questioning stale solutions and status quo strategies and coming up with new and better ways of tackling big problems. They’re dynamic, creative practitioners – disruptive thinkers, imaginers, inventors and creatives – who have already been recognized for their work. 
 
So they’re already experts in their fields when they come to us. But leadership is so much more than expertise.

Join the South Asian Business Forum at the Yale School of Management for a conversation with 2014 World Fellows, Nandita Das and Parmesh Shahani. 

With over 40 feature film credits to her name, Nandita is an award-winning Indian film actor and director who has leveraged her international profile to campaign on social issues concerning women, children and marginalized communities. She was the first Indian to be inducted into the International Women’s Forum Hall of Fame for her contributions to the arts. Firaaq, Nandita’s directorial debut feature film, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2008 and has traveled to over 50 festivals and won more than 20 awards.

Parmesh heads the Godrej India Culture Lab, an experimental ideas space in Mumbai working at the intersection of academia, business and the creative industries to explore what it means to be modern and Indian. He also serves as the Editor-at-Large for Verve Magazine India, and is author of the book “Gay Bombay: Globalization, Love and (Be)Longing in Contemporary India.” Parmesh is a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, a TED Fellow, an MIT ‘Futures of Entertainment’ Fellow, and a Utrecht University-Impakt Fellow.
