Next Generation Initiative

About the Initiative

The Bulletin’s Next Generation Initiative was created to ensure that new voices, steeped in science and public policy, have a trusted platform from which to address the world’s most pressing challenges. It includes the well-regarded Voices of Tomorrow column, annual Leonard M. Rieser Award, Editorial Fellows Program, and Board Fellows Program, among other activities.

Our Next Generation Initiative is part of an organizational commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Authors of varied age, ethnic, racial, gender, and social backgrounds pursue stories that are likewise varied—and therefore inherently more interesting than the journalism a less diverse group might produce.
