Emerson Trustee Judy Huret, MA ’69, will be honored next month at the World Learning Social Innovation Summit in San Francisco.

“Ms. Huret’s work embodies the mission of World Learning: to promote just global societies, advance leadership, empower people, and strengthen institutions though education, exchange, and development programs,” read a letter from World Learning board chairs Rosamond Delori and Virginia Loeb.
The June 5 summit will include a dinner honoring Huret for her work. The organization will also introduce the new Advancing Leaders Fellowship program, which includes a $10,000 grant and customized education program for five young social entrepreneurs to accelerate their social innovation projects.
