Rahel Shawl Zelleke First African Woman Awarded Loeb Fellowship at the Harvard Graduate School of Design!

Congratulations to Rahel Shawl Zelleke for being the first African woman to be awarded the Loeb Fellowship for the academic year 2016 – ’17.

Joined by other Fellows, Rahel will become a member of the worldwide network of practitioners supporting equity and social justice through the built and natural environment.

Rahel is acknowledged, at an African level, for her astounding contribution to her field, and to Ethiopia. She is recognized to be a role model for many in the country, because of her ethics and innovative work in raising design expectations in several cities in Ethiopia.

Through this fellowship, which aims to elevate her work and broaden her social impact, Rahel intends to continue contributing to the development of women in Ethiopia, through her outstanding professionalism, public talks, the growth of associations she has supported setting up, and ongoing mentorship of young architects.

An AWiB member, Rahel has also contributed to the association as a popular and well received speaker.
