“The Surge Fellowship has been life-giving in more ways than one. It has equipped me with the skills I need to more deftly apply my strengths to my work. It has given me space to reflect on my own journey. It has yielded access to a network of incredible leaders across our sector. Most importantly, it has given me the community I wanted but didn’t realize I needed. I move forward confidently grounded in the fullness of who I am and a commitment to love, excellence, and justice for our people.”
