Executive in Residence Program
Ashoka’s Executive in Residence Social Entrepreneurship Program connects executives to inspiring on-site volunteer opportunities with Ashoka Fellows around the world. Executives committed to social change will spend time with an Ashoka Fellow’s organization, working on a project critical to the success of the organization’s mission. In return, executives will experience social entrepreneurship in action. Each placement is designed jointly by Ashoka, our corporate partners, and Ashoka Fellows for a variety of meaningful opportunities. Placements are managed by experienced and informed Ashoka staff on the global and local levels. For details, please contact executiveinresidence@ashoka.org

My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He
asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a
moment, and then he asked, “Did you start at 1?”

Children’s Logic: “Give me a sentence about a public servant,” said a
teacher. The small boy wrote: “The fireman came down the ladder pregnant.”
The teacher took the lad aside to correct him. “Don’t you know what pregnant
means?” she asked.
“Sure,” said the young boy confidently. ‘It means carrying a child.”
