The Transnational NGO Initiative is pleased to announce the third annual Transnational NGO Leadership Institute, a leadership preparedness program offered by the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs of Syracuse University, in upstate New York, USA, to be held from May 19-24th 2013. The 2013 Leadership Institute will be led by experts from the Maxwell School along with well-respected NGO leaders.  Targeting current leaders who are working at the second tier of leadership in international NGO’s and who wish to prepare themselves to assume top leadership positions, this intensive five-day program will focus on "leap issues” critical to a successful transition to the highest levels of leadership in civil society.   These issues include: 

·       Leading in a Complex Context

·       Organizational Governance

·       Collaboration and Crisis

·       Politics and Power Relationships

·       Strategic Decision-Making and Performance Management 

In addition, participants will have the opportunity to explore the effect of their individual leadership style, to integrate their learning through experiential, hands-on exercises and simulations, and to expand their global network through interaction with peers examining the same leadership challenges and aspirations. 

Past participants represented strong and diverse peer organizations such as InterAction, ActionAid, Greenpeace, Trust Africa, Transparency International, ChildFund International, Plan International, IUCN, PRIP Trust and the Manusher Jonno Foundation in Bangladesh, World YWCA, and the National Democratic Institute.  

 For the May 2013 Institute, we are seeking a diverse group of participants representing transnational NGO’s from a variety of regions, organizational sizes, sectors and natures (secular as well as faith-based.)  Eligible professionals include those serving in senior management roles such as Vice President, Assistant Secretary General, Deputy Executive Director, Senior Management Team member, etc.  Participants will cover the training fee ($2,500), travel, room and board. A modest number of scholarships/subsidies may be available – only leaders from NGO’s founded in the Global South will be considered for such scholarships.  The deadline for application for scholarships is March 1, 2013.  Further details and application materials are available at
