The Edmond de Rothschild Foundations Partner with Columbia Business School and Scholars from Cambridge University.
Columbia Business School's Executive Education division will host the Ariane de Rothschild Fellows Program: Dialogue & Social Entrepreneurship working with scholars from Cambridge University in the summer of 2009. The program, now accepting applications, aims to develop a network of social entrepreneurs with an interest in fostering a culture of mutual respect and dialogue among Jewish and Muslim communities. Participants will complete an activity-driven social entrepreneurship curriculum, receive training in cross-cultural dialogue and leadership, and gain exposure to state-of-the-art scholarship.
The program will take place July 13-24, 2009, on the Columbia University campus. Participation is by application only. "Social entrepreneurs" -- those who aim to effect a positive social impact through innovative market-based solutions to urgent social problems -- from all sectors are encouraged to apply. Entrepreneurs should have already created their organization and be engaged in the early stages of development (one to four years), and must demonstrate an interest in fostering dialogue among Jewish and Muslim communities. Eligible participants must reside in the US, UK, and/or France, or operate their venture from these countries.
"The Ariane de Rothschild Fellows program provides an opportunity for talented social entrepreneurs to further develop their enterprises while learning from each other," said Faculty Director Bruce Kogut, Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. Professor of Leadership and Ethics. Professor Kogut will co-direct the program with Professor Gareth Stedman Jones and Dr. Edward Kessler, of Cambridge University. "By selecting this group of entrepreneurs from the UK, Europe and North America," he continued, "the program aims to be an example of how collaborative work toward a common goal can bring people together. The Sanford C. Bernstein Center is delighted to be involved with the program, and we are eager to welcome participants to a fruitful and inspiring 10 days of exchange and teaching."
