For the sixth year in a row, the Fellowship kicked off in June with a week-long orientation at Amherst College. Fellows enjoyed a weekend camping trip in Vermont’s Green Mountains before diving into technical training sessions, case studies, and various team-building activities. “I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet the other Fellows from around the world and share quality time with leaders at Vera to learn more about how the company operates,” reflects Mumbai-based Fellow Michelle Sheu.
“Fellowship Training was unlike anything I’ve previously been a part of,” says Cape Town-based Fellow Lucia Thesen. “Camping in the beginning was a great way to fast-track team bonding and the training sessions were fulfilling, motivating, and engaging throughout the week. I am looking forward to being placed on my first project and seeing all the concepts we learned at training come to life.”
