In the area of driving societal change, India Leaders for Social Sector (ILSS) is not just an organisation; it’s a catalyst for transformation. Recognising the pressing need for experienced leaders in the social sector, ILSS extends its support to leaders in their journey towards impactful change.

As 40% of NGOs in the Indian social impact space struggle to attract senior leadership talent, our Placements team is focused on bridging the gap by nurturing corporate talent for a crossover to the social sector.

The approach is not just about providing guidance; it’s about fostering a community of changemakers who are dedicated to creating a better world. Through personalised support and collaborative efforts, our Placements Team works with the Leadership Program Alumni and assists them in meaningfully engaging with available opportunities in the social sector.

Here’s how ILSS makes a difference:

  1. Tailored Guidance: ILSS understands that every leader’s journey is unique. That’s why we take the time to engage in one-on-one interactions, listening carefully to each leader’s story, passions, and aspirations. By offering personalised guidance, ILSS ensures that leaders feel empowered to navigate their path towards social impact.
  2. Strategic Partnerships: ILSS doesn’t just connect leaders with opportunities; It cultivates meaningful partnerships with client organisations to create a pipeline of impactful roles. Through strategic collaborations, ILSS ensures that leaders have access to a diverse range of opportunities that align with their skills and values. It deeply investigates every job description received and also develops a holistic understanding of the resource requirement.
  3. Tapping into the Alumni Network: Once alumni express interest in available opportunities, we carefully assess their compatibility with the role requirements, preferred location, and compensation expectations. Only after ensuring alignment in these crucial areas, do we proceed to share the details of the opportunities with them.
  4. Facilitating Connections: ILSS understands that meaningful connections are the key to driving lasting change. That’s why we serve as a bridge between leaders and potential employers, facilitating open dialogues and fostering connections that lead to impactful collaborations.

‘My aspiration was to work and contribute in the area of public health. The current situation of public health has only further determined my resolve. The Social Development sector is part of nation-building just like any other sector that builds the country’s economy, values and culture. As citizens, every activity we involve ourselves in, must serve the purpose of personal growth and community welfare around us. It is our responsibility to remain honest with this philosophy.’
– ILSS Alumnus Ishmeet Singh

By enabling established leaders to channel their skills and expertise from the corporate sector into the realm of social impact, ILSS is catalysing a profound shift in how we approach societal challenges. Through its transformative programs, ILSS not only equips these leaders with the necessary tools but also instils a deep sense of purpose and commitment to driving positive change.

By empowering leaders to leverage their skills and expertise for social good, ILSS is paving the way for a brighter, more inclusive future for all.
