Carnegie New Leaders

In today’s world of geopolitical upheaval and global economic transformation, where can young leaders go to truly understand the power of ethical leadership, its impact on multilateral cooperation and collaboration, as well as how it applies in their professional and personal lives?

Carnegie Ethics Fellows

The Carnegie Ethics Fellowship is a space for talented professionals to develop their capabilities and be examples of values-driven responsible leadership. Fellows will collaborate on projects curated by Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, where they will have the opportunity to contribute to work that has deep connections to both New York and the broader world.

The two-year Fellowship is structured to develop the next generation of ethical leaders from business, government, academia, and non-governmental organizations. The Fellowship is part of Carnegie Council’s significant commitment to developing ethics in leadership and to the communities of experts that work toward this end, aligning the power of decision-making with reflective right action.
