Paris Alumni Leadership Action Grant Project
TILN 2014 Alumna Samia Hathroubi, Paris based European director for the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding (FEU), organized through a GMF Alumni Leadership Action Grant a launch event/workshop on May 19 at GMF’s Paris Office in partnership with FEU. The event aimed to start an informal best practice community for inclusive leadership in France among rising young local political and civil society actors. The session focused on community organizing as a framework for action and change, with facilitator Tara Dickman of the Cabinet Studio Praxis. The event successfully created fellowship among the 14 participants and brought new tools and skills to help the young leaders in their quest to strengthen social cohesion in a time of rapid demographic change.
