Stanford's Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law invites you to a special event on Oct. 26 to celebrate the arrival of our second cohort of Ukrainian Emerging Leaders at Stanford - Yuliia Bezvershenko, Denis Gutenko, and Nariman Ustaiev - who will us for a conversation about their work and Ukraine's political development.
The three fellows were selected for their outstanding contributions to Ukraine's political, economic and social development. They have arrived at Stanford this September to start the fellowship program, which combines academic and project-based work. The event will be followed by a light outdoor reception.
The Ukrainian Emerging Leaders Program and this event are possible thanks to the generous support of our donors, which include: the Astem Foundation, Tomas Fiala, Victor and Iryna Ivanchyk, MacPaw, Omidyar Network, Parimatch, Slava Vakarchuk and Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF). The program was founded in 2016 by the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law at Stanford’s Freeman Spogli Institute together with Oleksandr Akymenko and Kateryna Akymenko (Stanford John S. Knight fellows) as an initiative to address development challenges in Ukraine and across the broader region.
