Kabir Barday Named to The Aspen Institute’s 2023 Class of Henry Crown Fellows

Barday brings his innovative spirit and unique perspective on trust to the prestigious entrepreneurial Fellowship

March 22, 2023

OneTrust Founder and CEO, Kabir Barday, has been named to The Aspen Institute’s 2023 Class of Henry Crown Fellows. Barday joins an esteemed group of proven entrepreneurial leaders chosen to apply their talents and skill sets to tackling the world’s most intractable problems and building a better society.

“OneTrust’s technology platform was built on the belief that what’s good for society is good for business. Stakeholders are pushing organizations to step up their positive impact, especially when it comes to their commitments across privacy, security, ethics, and social responsibility,” said Kabir Barday, founder and chief executive officer at OneTrust. “I look forward to being a part of the Henry Crown Fellowship as it aligns with OneTrust’s mission to demonstrate impact through responsible leadership and good governance.”

Henry Crown Fellows are nominated for consideration and once selected, they spend four weeks over the course of two years in structured retreats – honing their leadership, their core values, their vision for a Good Society, and looking toward the broader role they might take on in their communities or globally. But the Fellowship is not just about reflection. It is also about action: each Fellow launches a leadership venture that will stretch them and have a positive impact on their communities, their country, or the world.

“The greatest challenges of our time require solutions from innovative, effective, and thoughtful leaders,” said Tonya Hinch, executive director of the program. “This class embodies those ideals: they are a force for good, poised to channel their talents and energies into tackling these challenges. With this Fellowship, they are beginning a personal journey with a mosaic of like-hearted and unique minded classmates – a journey from success to significance – that will leave an impact on themselves and the world.”

The 2023 class of Henry Crown Fellows consists of 21 individuals and the full list can be found here.
