Each year, the Resolve Gala honors the accomplishments of Resolution Fellows working across sustainable development, education, energy and environment, equality, health, and humanitarian relief sectors. Resolution Fellows work in nearly 70 countries and across the United States, and have helped over 1.2 million people through their work. Resolve 2017 showcased seven installations that creatively explore areas of impact around the world being addressed by these inspiring young leaders.

“More than ever, we need young leaders with a social conscience and the capacity to solve problems in their communities and beyond. Resolution Fellows are tackling the world’s most pressing problems and they are succeeding today around the world. I am inspired by them and by our community, which has come together tonight to celebrate and support their work together,” said Resolution Board Chair and Co-Founder Oliver B. Libby.

“We had our largest group of Fellows ever assembled at Resolve to share their vision of hope, impact, and leadership,” said Resolution President and Co-Founder George M. Tsiatis, “and it was inspiring to see such a generous and powerful community rallying around them to support them. Resolution Fellows have positively impacted over 1.2 million beneficiaries so far, and it is because of the synergy we witnessed in the room at Resolve that 350 socially responsible young leaders with the support of hundreds of volunteers have combined to create such a powerful engine of positive impact. We are deeply grateful for our Fellows’ leadership, and for the leadership of all of the supporters, attendees, and sponsors!”
