**Note: Our Three Winners Foundation, the Othering & Belonging Institute and the Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project have decided that due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis we will not be going ahead with the 2020 Social Inclusion Policy Fellowship. We are working on a plan for 2021 and hope to continue our important work in the months and years ahead.
About the Fellowship
The Social Inclusion Policy Fellowship is a two-week fully paid fellowship program administered by the Our Three Winners Foundation in partnership with the Othering & Belonging Institute and the Islamophobia Research & Documentation Project. The fellowship engages current and future policymakers and raises awareness about harmful stereotypes and narratives around communities of color, with a focus on Islamophobia. The goal is to see more equitable policies and government interventions through this initiative. Topics covered during the fellowship include implicit bias, the social construction of targeted groups and implications in policy; policy priorities in the scope of social constructions; how bias enters into the policy-making process; unlearning bias with lessons on de-biasing for equitable policies; and rooting proactive and reactive policy alternatives in equity. The fellowship was launching in over the 2019 summer. Read about the inaugural program in our news summary. To learn more visit the Our Three Winners Foundation website.
