OTD and HBS Welcome First Blavatnik Fellows
OTD and HBS were excited to acknowledge the first group of Blavatnik Fellows as they embarked upon their yearlong journeys and officially launched the new fellowship program. On October 17, the fellows were officially welcomed with a reception in the Hamilton Hall Lounge on the HBS campus.
Professor Vicki Sato, Faculty Chair of the Fellowship, welcomed guests and shared the story of bringing the program into fruition. Fellows were then given an opportunity to introduce themselves and share their experiences and fellowship goals. Excitement for the launch of this new initiative was captured in enthusiastic conversations during the reception that followed.
