The Boehm Media Fellowship
The Boehm Media Fellowships provide journalists, storytellers, authors, bloggers, writers, editors, filmmakers, and other media experts at the helm of social impact with a major focus on poverty alleviation and injustice the opportunity to participate as Delegates at the Opportunity Collaboration. The Boehm Media Fellowship seeks to open doors, minds and networks for Fellows as well as enrich the Opportunity Collaboration with the knowledge and skills of leading media innovators and experts. We are seeking individuals who, on their own or through their organizational roles, utilize the media in creative and innovative ways to influence culture, collaborate with communities, engage in new paradigms and develop ideas to create social impact.
We understand media to include a range of sectors that represent diverse and multidisciplinary fields focused on any means of mass communication including but not limited to journalism, print or digital publications, public relations and communications, social media, film, podcasts, radio, television, photography, media literacy and other mixed, new or emerging media channels and productions. Fellows who participate have the opportunity to collaborate and share their work in a dynamic environment in which they will raise awareness, share knowledge, shift attitudes, diversify outlooks, test ideas, tell stories, build skills and capacity at the Opportunity Collaboration and beyond. As a result, Delegates discover new avenues of making social impact through media. In doing so, we hope to inspire and cultivate greater potential to create social impact through the media. The Boehm Media Network consists of Fellows, Senior Fellows, Alumni and affiliates from around the world.
