The Gender Lab Fellowship is a space for building young women’s leadership skills, self-awareness, and sisterhood through a multi layered ‘service learning’ model.

This year’s fellowship will look at addressing the deepened inequalities and challenges faced by adolescent girls and women from diverse communities. They are looking for passionate individuals who want to be at the forefront of tackling these issues while also understanding and taking on the patriarchal systems within and around us.

This fellowship will include:

  • A learning track for fellows to build their personal skills, professional skills and knowledge on gender issues.

  • Each fellow training 250-300 school girls for a 6 month community service based leadership program.

  • Fellows initiating community based research/ action projects, events/ campaigns that address issues of gender based violence

  • A deep dive into their own gender stereotypes and blocks to their self-empowerment from an intersectional lens.

They want to share that since the year does not look predictable at all, they are certain that the fellowship itself will be uniquely dynamic to meet the challenges that come up. While they are committed to a year full of learning – both on ground and within self, they are hoping to have fellows who will be flexible with the design and experiences of this year. They may jump from school to communities to collaborations that they haven’t explored before to co building this even more with our fellows. This year the fellowship is looking for those who are ready to take some creative risks, innovate on the go, open to an explosion of unlearning, excited to be with them in a year that TGL will take more bold steps towards its vision.

They hope to take big leaps towards amplifying the voice, agency and leadership of girls and women this coming year with our fellows.

They will be selecting a cohort of 10 fellows for 2021-22.
