Our hope is that, together, we will make a larger difference.
To build and develop an informed understanding and appreciation of the social sector and to facilitate cross-sector learning and cross-pollination of ideas, we at ILSS aim to create a repository of knowledge on the sector, including leadership best practices, case studies, surveys, and so on. By showcasing the transformative nature of work in the social sector, we aim to make the sector an aspirational and inspirational place for talent from diverse backgrounds.
In addition to our flagship nine-day leadership program, we host various events and guest lectures through the year, across locations, where we bring together different stakeholders from the social sector and industry to interact with and learn from each other. We believe that these conversations are critical if we want to create a sense of shared purpose. You can join these discussions, contributing with your knowledge, experience, insights and questions. We would love to host such events with you.
Our nine-day leadership program aims to create a cohort of successful, sensitised leaders motivated to play a meaningful role in the social sector. Mentored and inspired by stellar faculty and leading practitioners, our leaders develop a nuanced understanding and perspective of the social sector over the course of the program. Their exposure to a carefully designed development management curriculum combined with their diverse skills and experience make them a valuable talent pool for the social sector. We invite your organisation to partner with us in providing leadership opportunities to these leaders.
At ILSS we believe that learning happens through experience and not just through classroom teaching. Thus, we have dedicated a part of our nine-day leadership program to a grassroots immersion experience to give participants a closer perspective of how non-profits work, how they embed themselves in the community and the relationships they build to achieve impact. If your organisation has been involved in exceptional transformational work on the ground, we would love to have our leaders visit your organisation and spend some time learning from you.
