Do you seek an opportunity to polish your leadership skills? If yes, then you must check out the WISE Emerging Leaders Program in Qatar and Italy, as they are now accepting applications for the 2023 cohort.

The WISE Emerging Leaders program is in its 5th year, the program will run for 9 months, providing training to leaders who wish to kick start a journey on transforming their mindset, skills and techniques needed to change their communities and transform education systems.

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the global education system and also caused ecological collapse. Therefore, WISE believes it’s important now to create platforms for leaders in education to come together, connect meaningfully, learn with each other, and collaborate for collective impact.

The transformation of education systems goes beyond implementing change at the structural and systemic levels, it also requires change at the intrapersonal and interpersonal levels. Hence, Leaders who are compassionate and creative, and cultivate their team’s well-being, can spark innovation and systemic change.
