The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and Atlas Corps are excited to announce the second cohort of the Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureate Virtual Leadership Institute.

The Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureate Virtual Leadership Institute is a virtual leadership training opportunity for emerging social change leaders exclusively within the Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureate community. The Leadership Institute is supported by Hilton Foundation in collaboration with Atlas Corps, a leader in professional exchange and leadership development.  At its heart, the Leadership Institute is a community that provides professional development to social change leaders working at organizations that have been recipients of the Hilton Humanitarian Prize.


The Leadership Institute focuses on the three themes of developing self, developing others, and leading movements while also strengthening connections within the Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureate community.


The Leadership Institute is organized into five online learning modules: Orientation, Developing Self, Developing Others, Leading Movements, Reflection Retreat. This five-month online program for Hilton Humanitarian Prize Laureates includes keynote speakers, interactive workshops, self-led activities, discussion groups, and community-building activities with leading U.S. organizations and leaders. Hilton Prize Laureate Scholars will also work on an individual leadership project that benefits the Scholar’s current organization. In addition to engaging within our Laureate community, the Hilton Prize Laureate Scholars will become members of the broader Atlas Corps Community of more than 1,100 professionals from over 110 countries!
