It has been instrumental in providing access to new opportunities and networks in the sector, along with guidance to make the best decision, aligned to our passion & purpose. You also get the opportunity to interact with a great set of peers
With ILSS, I find myself learning and unlearning in the company of spirited peers, pioneering leaders and renowned academics. It has helped me address a crucial question: How to build the foundational knowledge to go further? From Economics to Social Entrepreneurship, from Leadership dilemmas to the dynamics of partnership, the program has given me great clarity and direction to the path ahead.
ILSS was a life-changing experience for me. It gave me a holistic view of the sector and enabled me with the entire social sector ecosystem which included access to the opportunities, social sector leaders, practitioners, and offered a great platform to interact with the vibrant cohort members. The ILSS team inspired me at each and every step of my transition journey and facilitated my movement into the social sector.
I feel I have finally been given a playbook on fundraising! As someone who set up my organization to make a difference, the fundraising world was very opaque to me. Now, I feel confident in showcasing our work and tapping in to what I initially thought was a tight financial space.
