The final immersion of the inaugural group of the Mercy Global Action Emerging Leaders Fellowship is due to begin on 12 February until 20 February, 2021.

Due to the coronavirus, the Mercy Global Action Emerging Leaders Fellowship has met unprecedented and unexpected obstacles in its inaugural year. The first Fellowship group was due to graduate in Ireland this past July 2020. Graduation has since then been postponed until February 2021 and will be hosted virtually on the Zoom platform. Although this decision was very disappointing to us all, we have used this opportunity to think creatively how to move forward.

During the final virtual immersion, Fellows will be presenting their research, taking a tour of Catherine’s House, participating in leadership workshops, fireside chats, art processing and more.

Invitation to Mercy Global Action Emerging Leaders Fellows Research Presentations

Mercy Global Action Emerging Leaders Fellows (Group One 2019-2021) have prepared extensive research presentations on various Mercy justice issues. These research presentations will be conducted via Zoom from Tuesday 16rh - Thursday 18th of February, 2021.

The program, including a schedule of the research presentations, names of the presenting Fellows and a research project description is available for download.
