Aspen Institute Romania has opened the call for nominations for its Young Leaders Program. This program gathers each year 20 high profile regional young leaders with a clear two-fold goal: to promote and advance progressive leadership within society; and to develop the regional network of Aspen Fellows, based on shared values and common interests.
This Program is designed for people who have the potential, interest and determination to exercise leadership to the highest standards of civic and corporate responsibility and according to the ethical values on which Aspen is based. For this reason Aspen Institute offers a program which challenges people to think about the fundamental concepts on which our society is founded. It also makes participants reflect to the challenges and conflicts that leaders must face in deciding polices and strategies for their organizations and their communities in today’s world. The program consists of four modules taking place in Romania:
- Module I: “The Aspen Seminar” (11 – 17 April 2016);
- Module II: “Modern Leadership” (27 June – 3 July 2016);
- Module III: “Leadership Challenges Today” (12 – 18 September 2016);
- Module IV: “Community Service” (12 December 2016).
The Program addresses people between the ages of 25 and 35 having achieved significant professional positions and accomplished results within their area of activity. Candidates should have demonstrated leadership potential, a record of initiative and entrepreneurship and a proven civic interest. Candidates from following countries are eligible: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine. Participants are required to have a high level of English fluency, as it is the working language of the program.
