The TNGO Initiative will host the first Transnational NGO Leadership Institute next month, September 14-20. The inaugural module in the Institute, which offers executive leadership preparation programs, is for invited NGO leaders only, and will focus specifically on leaders who currently work at the second tier of responsibility in their organizations and who wish to prepare themselves for top leadership. This focus came out of the realization that leadership succession and transition remain a difficult issue for the TNGO sector. We hope to offer this module, as well as future additional modules, annually.
The Institute is guided by an impressive Steering Group of external NGO practitioners, and has a cohort of 16 participants with great regional, sector and gender diversity. Excellent Maxwell faculty and NGO leaders are contributing to the program content. For a full update on participants, contributors and program, please visit www.maxwell.syr.edu/leadershipinstitute. Applications for the 2012 Leadership Institute will open late this fall.
