Program Description: The Asia Pacific Leadership Program is a 4 month blended leadership development program which brings together people who want to co-create the future as self-reflective, resilient agents. Using experiential, place-based learning with a focus on equity, cohorts of leaders practice leadership strategies in nurturing environments. For nearly 20 years, we have been cultivating leaders who are motivated and capable of creating positive impact in the Indo-Asia Pacific region. Incoming fellows join a network of 605 APLP alumni from 45 countries across the globe. The APLP Approach: our programs stimulate individual growth and foster self-leadership for emerging and established leaders; we build on communities' diversity and abundance by offering strategies that can be adapted to leaders' own contexts; we support leaders as they practice implementing prototypes with teams, reflecting on results and refining for impact.
