Mikkel continuously serves in leadership positions outside the company as well. He was an advisor to the prime minister of his native Denmark and was chosen to be a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. The Luhya tribe of western Kenya made Mikkel an elder, a rare and important honor for foreigners who have touched the lives of Kenyans in an extraordinary manner. He has served on the board of directors of the Roll Back Malaria partnership, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), and the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease. He is also a member of NASA/USAID LAUNCH Council.
For his contributions to humanitarian efforts, Mikkel has been honored with the 2009 Social and Economic Innovation Award from The Economist, was elected to the "Women Deliver 100" list of the most influential people contributing to the health of women and girls around the world, was celebrated at the 2011 Danish Hero Gala in Copenhagen, and named by Success magazine in 2014 as one of "9 Visionaries Shaping the Future."
