The Last Word: NTXIA’s Jennifer Sanders on the New Urban Resilience Fellowship

“We’re hopeful to have ‘lightbulb moments’ for each of our community partners.”

Jennifer Sanders
Co-Founder and Executive Director
North Texas Innovation Alliance 
.…on the launch of the NTXIA’s Urban Resilience Fellowship Program, in partnership with UT Arlington and UT Dallas.

NTXIA’s new Urban Resilience Fellowship Program, launched in partnership with UT Arlington and UT Dallas, connects students from universities and higher education institutions across Dallas-Fort Worth with community and industry partners. The pioneering initiative “aims to nurture emerging leaders and equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to address critical challenges facing the North Texas community.”

“Through this pilot program, we hope to combine multiple perspectives and schools of thought from cities, universities, and more,” Sanders said in a statement. “This also supports our mission of bringing previously siloed groups together, with the aim of expanding the program to include other partners, universities, and colleges in the region, to further support innovation that will benefit residents of North Texas.”
