The United Nations Foundation today announced its partnership with ColorComm, the premier organization for women of color in all areas of communications including Public Relations, Corporate Communications, Advertising Print Media, Broadcast, Digital, and more. The UN Foundation will host its first annual ColorComm fellowship in New York, to coincide with the UN General Assembly, the High-Level Summit on Managing Movements of Migrants and Refugees, and the 2016 Social Good Summit. The objective of the ColorComm fellowship is to connect participants to events and issues relevant to the UN and UN Foundation in addressing global challenges.
This 3-day fellowship, held September 17-19, will include access to the 2016 Social Good Summit and Social Good Master Class, during which fellows will have the opportunity to interact with speakers and experts dedicated to human rights, international development, girls and women, refuges, global health, and climate. This collaboration will allow the UN Foundation to gain insight on messaging and the impact of global and UN-focused events from diverse-minded communications experts.
Fellows will participate in fireside chats, networking receptions/dinner, and conversations with influencers discussing the power of communications and storytelling in seeking global solutions.
