Building young leadership capacity across the globe to change the trajectory of health for humanity

At Johnson & Johnson, we are committed to building leadership capacity in the health and care giving arena and empowering young leaders both within our organization and in the outside world, to change the trajectory of health for humanity.

We have partnered with One Young World, an NGO which connects the world’s most impactful young leaders to create a better world, since 2013. To date, 166 Johnson & Johnson OYW leaders (aged 18-30) from across the globe have participated in the six month J&J OYW program, providing them with the unique opportunity to debate and formulate innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing health issues.

In 2019, the OYW Summit returns ‘home’ to London (22-25 October) for the first time since the inaugural Summit in 2010.

The Johnson & Johnson OYW Scholarship Program

For the third year running, Johnson & Johnson Global Community Impact is collaborating with One Young World to offer scholarships to 12 aspiring young leaders across the globe to participate in the 2019 Johnson & Johnson One Young World Scholarship Program.

As well as attending the upcoming 2019 One Young World Summit, scholarship recipients will receive individual coaching from senior Johnson & Johnson executives to further develop their aspiration, strategy and/or initiatives. In addition, all J&J OYW scholars are buddied with a team of 2019 J&J delegates over the course of the six-month program to help build and strengthen the capacity of the Scholar, through the sharing of their skills and knowledge.

Application for the 2019 J&J OYW Program are now closed and the names of the 12 scholar recipients will be announced in July.

The role of executive coaching in the J&J OYW Scholarship Program

All J&J OYW scholars receive 1:1 coaching from senior J&J executives to further develop and build their leadership capacity. These sessions explore the key challenges facing the scholars in terms of growing or scaling their organisation, services or products and provide a wealth of knowledge and expertise from the corporate world to guide the scholars on their leadership journey, and achieve a positive impact to human health.
