The ILSS Leadership Program

The ILSS Leadership Program is an intensive program which adopts an approach combining classroom sessions, field visits, continuous learning and an enabling support system designed to inspire, empower and enable high-quality talent from diverse backgrounds to take up leadership roles in the development sector.

Our leadership programs are specially curated learning sessions with domain experts and leaders in the social sector, facilitating a better understanding of the social sector so as to engage with it more meaningfully. While we await meeting in person, the online sessions can familiarise you with the social sector and its changing contexts, to help navigate this space more confidently, especially in these difficult times.
