Atlas Corps CEO Scott Beale Recognized Amongst Top Nonprofit Leaders
Named to The NonProfit Times “Power & Influence Top 50”

Washington D.C. (August 1, 2016) — Atlas Corps Founder and CEO Scott Beale received the distinct honor of being named to the “Power & Influence Top 50 2016” by The NonProfit Times.

The list, in its 19th year, annually honors the nonprofit sector’s most influential leaders. This recognition is an organizational milestone that recognizes the achievements that Scott and Atlas Corps have made within the sector through the innovative use of long-term professional exchange. It is a recognition especially significant as Atlas Corps celebrates 10 years in 2016.

The article describes Scott as "a blend of social entrepreneur and reverse engineer. He imports leaders from around the world to the U.S., instead of the other way around, influencing a broader worldview for the sector. His pipeline is embedded in important U.S. nonprofits. Beale’s efforts span four continents, intertwining nonprofits, government and business."

“This honor is a team win for Atlas Corps,” shared Beale. “It reflects the achievement of our 10 years of developing leaders. It is also a result of our partnership with the White House and State Department, the Emerging Global Leaders Initiative. It is a testament to our amazing Fellows, wonderful Host Organizations, and incredible team."

Atlas Corps is recognized for its global impact and social entrepreneurial model. Under Scott’s leadership, Atlas Corps developed an innovative method of developing and connecting global leaders by providing 6-18 month, overseas fellowships for social change professionals from around the world. The Atlas Corps network includes more than 500 leaders from 76 different countries who have served at 200 Host Organizations in the United States, Colombia, and Australia.

Atlas Corps congratulates this year’s nominees and gives a special shout out to individuals from our Host Organizations, which include: American Express Foundation, InterAction, Save the Children, and the UN Foundation.

Scott Beale and the other awardees will be honored at a ceremony at the National Press Club next month.

About Atlas Corps

Launched in 2006, the mission of Atlas Corps is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations, and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled social change professionals. Profiled as a “best practice” in international exchange by the Brookings Institution and World Economic Forum, featured in the Washington Post and Forbes as a model social entrepreneurship program, and recognized as a Top 10 International Voluntary Exchange Program by the U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy, Atlas Corps engages leaders committed to the social change sector in 6 to 18 month, professional fellowships at organizations (like Ashoka, Peace Corps, and Nike Foundation) to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global changemakers. Our Fellow community includes more than 500 leaders from 76 countries and 200 Host Organizations. In 2014, we launched a State Department partnership as part of a White House Initiative to engage 100 civil society leaders in our Fellowship – Emerging Global Leaders Initiative-Atlas Corps Fellowship.
