The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has just celebrated the milestone 15th year of its Fellowship program, a program designed to foster representation in underrepresented and underprivileged communities!
Fifteen years later, the numbers speak for themselves: 813 fellows representing 160 countries have participated in the program. Currently, 119 former fellows hold positions across the ICANN community and on the Board of Directors. We also have 13 former fellows working in the ICANN organization.Ergys Ramaj
ICANN President and CEO Göran Marby credits the Fellowship program with bringing fresh ideas and a renewed interest in internet governance to the global stage. “That many former fellows, all across the world, remain active members of the ICANN community speaks to the success of the Fellowship Program,” Marby is quoted as saying.
