On Wednesday, December 16, Atlas Corps hosted the Virtual Global Impact Gala. The event was our largest gathering to date. We brought together more than 250 friends of Atlas Corps, our Fellows, Scholars, and Alumni worldwide, and thousands of virtual viewers for a celebration.
Highlights of the evening included inspiring words by Atlas Corps Founder & CEO Scott Beale and the presentation of the Atlas Corps Global Changemaker Award to Dr. Madeleine Albright. Singer, Songwriter, and Composer Ari Afsar performed a song from a new musical, Jeannette.
In the second part of our Gala event, Scott Beale presented the Atlas Corps Alumni Changemaker Award to Alumna Medha (Class 16, Nepal) for her global contribution to support women and girls by protecting their sexual and reproductive rights. Alumna Patience (Class 33, Nigeria) performed a spoken word and read her poetry.
Over the years, so many people have contributed to our success—the friends who first listened to my crazy idea, our first Fellows who were true trailblazers, our Host Organizations, our donors, our 850+ social change leaders from 99 countries! A special thank you to Gala Co-Chairs, our Board of Directors, Host Committee, Alumni Host Committee and Advisory Council, Sponsors, and Team for hosting a very successful virtual event!
