Innovation and Leadership in Government Program (ILG)

Georgetown University’s Innovation and Leadership in Government Program (ILG) seeks to equip public managers with analytical frameworks and tools to generate and implement innovative public policies, while providing leadership development opportunities so they may effectively promote new ideas and programs in their respective government entities. The ILG Program brings together public policy actors from Latin American countries with at least 5 years of experience. Candidates participate in a 3-week program at Georgetown University where they exchange ideas, best practices, and challenges facing the public sector throughout Latin America.

Program Objectives

  • Fundamentals – reinforce the principles of democratic governance and analysis of the role of governments in the society. Identify emergent challenges and innovative ways to approach public policies.
  • Innovation and Development of Public Policies – provide participants with the latest tools and techniques to develop and evaluate viable high-impact public policies.
  • Diverse Perspectives – share and analyze best practices in the development and implementation of innovative public policies. Create the space for participants with diverse experiences to exchange ideas, challenges, and solutions.
  • Personal Leadership Development – strengthen the personal leadership skills of public actors as they become agents of change within their institutions and for the society.

The ILG Program is organized by the Latin American Board, the McCourt School of Public Policy, and the McDonough School of Business.
