ILSS Leaders, the alumni of our flagship 9-day Leadership Program, come from fields as varied as finance, retail, technology, media, education and defence, but share a common passion for the cause of making India a more equal, more just and more peaceful country. ILSS Leaders are a tightly-knit community of sensitised professionals, who are aligned to the different paradigms of social development, aware of the challenges and social realities, and inspired and energised to work in the social sector. The alumni are now discovering their own place in the world of social change and helping each other on their journeys, supported by the ILSS team in their endeavours.
