The Jane Glassco Northern Fellowship has announced fifteen new fellows will join its program.

Since its launch in 2010, the Jane Glassco Northern Fellowship has been working with Northern leaders to help improve the social, economic, and political landscape of communities in the North.

Throughout the program fellows will receive skills training, mentorship and networking opportunities under the guidance of elders.

This year, five individuals from the Northwest Territories have been selected to become fellows.

In a press release, Sherry Campbell, President and CEO at the Gordon Foundation says that the newest fellows selected are the “brightest minds in Canada”.

The fellows will collaborate to generate ideas and tackle areas that include: education, the environment and truth and reconciliation.
