All Fellows Conference

San Francisco Bay Area selected as location for 2017!

Join hundreds of Fellows, from our earliest years to our most recent classes, representing more than 50 countries and countless communities, as they reconvene for four inspiring days. Private sector visionaries, impact investors, and local champions of social entrepreneurship gather with Fellows for issue-focused roundtables, peer-led site visits, and open discussions. Fellows and guests return to their own work with new connections, fresh perspectives, and renewed commitment to positive social change.


Convening Leaders with Purpose

Great leaders need motivation, dedication, and resilience. Convening with others offers the fuel to renew their commitment.

Fellows share a common purpose, but can also challenge each other to see their work and their impact in a wider global context.

Social entrepreneurs thrive in a community that supports their vision and nurtures their well-being.

2016 All Fellows Conference, Atlanta

Atlanta has a unique history of community-led solutions—as a city with the resilience to rebuild after the Civil War, at the crossroads of a long fight for civil rights, and home of a number of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Today, Atlanta is a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity in the U.S., and is home to some of the most successful and recognizable companies in the world, yet it also continues to have the largest income inequality in the country. Atlanta offered Echoing Green Fellows and our community the opportunity to explore and deepen their understanding of the intersection of social justice and social innovation.
