Date : 5 - 13 April 2019
Venue : Ashoka University, Sonipat, Haryana
India Leaders for Social Sector (ILSS) conducted the fifth edition of its flagship ILSS Leadership Program from April 5 to 13, 2019. The nine-day residential course was once hosted at Ashoka University.
Over nine days, the best minds in the social sector helped program participants gain a deeper understanding of the development landscape in the country, including the challenges, complexities and opportunities. Seventeen senior executives from diverse industries, such as finance, media and infotech, attended the latest edition of the ILSS Leadership Program.
“It is our endeavour that program participants step out of the ILSS Leadership Program with greater clarity on how they can contribute to the country’s development agenda – some might transition to the social sector while others might volunteer more effectively or even start social enterprises of their own,” says Anu Prasad, Founder-Director, ILSS. “We also support our leaders’ journey in the social sector through placement support and mentoring.“
As always, the latest program featured an impressive list of over 30 speakers:
With this fifth edition of its nine-day leadership program, ILSS’s alumni strength has touched 85. ILSS alumni are today placed at reputed organisations such as Central Square Foundation, Kaivalya Education Foundation, Public Health Foundation of India, Social Finance India and Educate Girls, among others.
Applications are now open for the next edition of the program, which is scheduled for August 23 to 31, 2019.
