Become a 1580 Fellow

At Ditchley, our fellows are at the heart of what we do.  We bring together people from different industries and sectors to share ideas, make meaningful connections and effect change on the most challenging global issues.

Members of the 1580 Fellowship support The Ditchley Foundation’s mission to renew and redefine how democracies can lead and engage in an evolving world.  The 1580 Fellowship is named for the year which Ditchley entered history, when Sir Henry Lee created the Ditchley Estate.

Why join?

Rising to the challenges of our time, we must increase our ambition and to achieve this, we need to widen our support through the 1580 Fellowship.  Fellows will be evermore connected to Ditchley – the place and its purpose – by becoming members of our community of thoughtful doers.  We introduce you to a network of leaders, invite you to take part in live and virtual discussions with global thinkers and welcome your ideas which contribute towards finding solutions.
