"Our basic belief, as Emerson taught, is that we are doubly obligated: we must rely on ourselves and we must rely on each other. By helping individuals to achieve their dreams, we unleash the full force of the world’s most powerful resource: human potential.

At Emerson Collective, we believe that, occasionally, one talented individual is best equipped to break open a new way of thinking about some of society’s most calcified systems and propel an important national conversation forward.

That’s why we support individuals as Fellows. Our Fellows are social entrepreneurs, writers, scientists, lawyers, artists, academics, and beyond, who are advancing important new work in education, immigration, the environment, social justice, media, and health." --Laurene Powell Jobs
