Senior Leadership Development Programme for International NGOs in Arusha, Tanzania
Students Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC) Director Catherine Gerard and Tosca Bruno-van Vijfeijken, Director of the Transnational NGO Initiative at the Maxwell School, traveled to Arusha, Tanzania from July 10- 14, 2017. They were invited by several large international NGOs, ActionAid, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, and Oxfam, to once again deliver the Senior Leadership Development Programme. This program – now in its fifth year - works to systematically develop new senior leaders by using adult learning methods that first build understanding of key concepts and leadership principles, and then tests them through interactive learning and application. The program’s focus on inter-organizational sharing and comparing is a unique and powerful feature of this program. The Transnational NGO Initiative cultivated this customized program as an offshoot of the open enrollment-based Leadership Institute established in 2011.
