The AdR Fellowship develops an outstanding network of entrepreneurs and social activists with a genuine ability for innovative thinking and cross-cultural dialogue.

Business Training & Innovative Leadership
The program blends an intense business school curriculum with thought provoking academic readings and dialogue workshops.
It targets visionary leaders with strong skills in driving social change, critical thinking and empathy. The AdR Fellow is eager to learn, thinks out of the box and believes in the strength of pluralism.
Through an intense summer program followed by a winter bootcamp, the AdR Fellowship helps change makers to strengthen their impact, develop their organization and navigate across cultural differences by a combination of theoretical teaching, tailor-made coaching and peer-to-peer learning.
As the Fellowship continues to expand, we focus on individuals and organizations mainly from Muslim and Jewish communities, although the program is open to everyone working for social change in the following countries: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, UK and USA. As we move forward, the Fellowship will continue to enlarge its geographical reach.
