SHAD CHANGE MAKERS

 

 

Our network of lifelong SHAD Fellows includes thought leaders and digital revolutionaries, CEOs and academic superstars. What do they all have in common? They’re Change Makers. SHAD Fellows are pushing the envelope of what’s possible, using their abilities in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics as the catalyst to bring new ideas and new industries to life. They follow different paths and pursue various fields, but our Change Makers are bound together by their adventurous minds, entrepreneurial spirit, and natural leadership.

 

Do you see yourself as part of our network of change makers?
