Signal Fund is bridging critical funding gaps for social innovatorsLEARN MORE


Echoing Green’s Social Impact Talent Report highlights best-in-class social change leaders with bold ideas for solving the world’s most pressing challenges.

Meet the 2022 finalists

We received nearly 1,300 applications from more than 100 countries for the second Fellowship application cycle of 2022. The 48 Echoing Green Fellowship Finalists are creating pathways to a better, more equitable future for their communities and beyond.

This group of change-making leaders is leveraging storytelling and systems thinking to ensure power and opportunity in the hands of their communities. From nurturing the literacy and mental health of children impacted by war in Kabul, Afghanistan through mobile library services; to reimagining a community health insurance model that supports rural families in Sub-Saharan Africa gain access to quality health care; and a collective of Black healers providing culturally informed maternal care for Black birthing families in Los Angeles, California.

While only some of the dedicated entrepreneurs in this Talent Report will go on to join the Echoing Green Fellow community, they bring a potent truth about collective power to the forefront: together, we can dismantle root injustices. With leaders like these innovators paving the way, we draw closer to a world that has yet to exist—one free from racism and its far-reaching consequences where all people can thrive.

What’s next for these innovative movement-builders today?

Lasting and transformative social change requires us to come together and collaborate toward our shared goal of a more just, equitable, and sustainable world. To get there, we must ensure that those closest to the problems are supported to lead the solutions. The potential among these change-makers knows no bounds; it’s up to us all to invest now and for the long haul to advance the equity and sustainability needed in the world today.

These 48 leaders are Finalists for the second 2022 Echoing Green Fellowship cohort. Fellows will be announced in October 2022. Explore this list to check out these leaders and their efforts to advance racial justice and combat systemic oppression around the world!
