Geography Ph.D. candidate Arianna Muirow was recently awarded a fellowship through The Henry M. Jackson Leadership Fellows Program for the work she is doing as the Communications and Policy Director for Food Action.
The program is designed to support the leadership development of young professionals in Seattle working in fields of international affairs, human rights, environment and natural resources management, energy, and public service. The Jackson Leadership Fellows Program is based on the belief that engaging young professionals in leadership will improve the effectiveness of problem solving in the nation and in our local communities.
Beginning in October and continuing throughout the 2017-2018 academic year, Arianna sees the fellowship as a great way to support her in applying to her doctoral work in the field by leveraging action for social change. "I am excited to learn and grow in my career from my mentor, the other fellows in my cohort, and all that the Jackson Foundation has to offer" Arianna says. "I would highly encourage graduates from our department working in these fields to apply in June when the application opens".
