ELEVATE: A Fellowship Advancing Public Health Leadership for Transfeminine Folks of Color

Overview:
The ELEVATE Fellowship advances the leadership of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) transfeminine folks by effectively increasing their personal and professional development, particularly in navigating and improving social and public health systems. This program, rooted in skills-building and professional and leadership development, consists of quarterly cohort-based courses, monthly small group meetings, and an annual project.

The 2021-2022 ELEVATE cohort consists of 16 fellows and began with an intensive digital training and virtual convening October 15-17, 2021. Beyond the cohort-based curriculum that the ELEVATE program offers, additional benefits for fellows include:
  A $1500 stipend
  A $500 tech credit
  Meals provided during webinars and convenings
  Access to mentorship opportunities through our alumni network
  Additional professional development resources and opportunities

We are excited to announce our ELEVATE Fellows for 2021-22!
