Engage, Educate & Train


Equipping Current and Future Leaders with Knowledge and Skills for System-Building

Engage, Educate, Train

ISE’s Engage, Educate, and Train Programs advance approaches to equip new generation leaders and managers with the knowledge, skills, and tools to create inclusive policies and accountable and effective institutions. The complex challenges faced by leaders today require not only technical fixes, but also involve changing the mindsets, behaviors, and incentives of multiple stakeholders.

Today, progress largely depends on effective leaders and managers across society who share a common vision and know how to collaborate and harness capacities, all while managing divisive forces that transformation processes invariably bring to the fore. The ability to carefully navigate the political economy of reform while galvanizing the energies of multiple stakeholders towards a shared purpose is critical for the leaders of tomorrow.
