Our Program

The ILSS Leadership Program is an intensive nine-day residential course designed to inspire, empower and enable high-quality talent from diverse backgrounds to play leadership roles in the development sector.

Over nine days, the best minds in the social sector—NGO heads, philanthropists, practitioners, grassroots leaders, activists, development economists, thinkers, government officials, academics and foundation heads, among others—offer our participants multiple perspectives on the challenges, complexities, nuances and opportunities in the development space.

It is our hope and endeavour that ILSS leaders step out of the program with a deeper understanding of how the social sector works and with a greater clarity on how they themselves can contribute to the country’s development agenda.

Our Founding Story

India Leaders for Social Sector (ILSS) was set up in September 2017 with the aim of creating a learning and development organisation that will help build leadership talent for the social sector. Incubated by Central Square Foundation, we held the first edition of our flagship leadership program in January 2018 to offer senior leaders from diverse backgrounds a deeper understanding of the social sector and how they can engage more meaningfully with the task of achieving India’s development goals.
