Meet the Fellows 


The twenty leaders and storytellers in the inaugural Rethink Outside™ Fellowship cohort were chosen from more than 150 applications received for this opportunity. Blue Sky Funders Forum convened an external review panel who recommended finalists to be considered. The inaugural cohort represents the diversity of the applicant pool with regards to geography, background, identity, race, career experience, age, and learning goals. All twenty fellows identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color and are committed to lifting up the benefits of time spent outdoors as a basic human right.

Responding to the high demand for this opportunity, and our commitment to elevate voices and stories of representatives and organizations led by Black, Indigenous, and people of color, Blue Sky Funders Forum has invited all qualified fellowship applicants to join selected events and programs through Rethink Outside™ – including Rethink Outside™ Storytellers (an invite-only online gathering space) to connect, build community, and share resources, jobs, tools, events, and more.
