Fully Funded Inclusive Global Leadership Initiative’s Summer Institute is available for application. The Inclusive Global Leadership Initiative (IGLI) is inviting nominations for third annual Summer Institute, in collaboration with the U.S. Institute of Peace from August 24-31, 2019, in Colorado and Washington, D.C. The 2019 Summer Institute will convene leading women-identifying activists from the frontlines of movements to advance peace, justice, and human rights across the world.

This summer institute brings women-identified activists working on the frontlines to promote peace, justice, and human rights around the world to Colorado to receive advanced training in waging successful nonviolent movements for social change. In addition, the Institute is designed to strengthen their role as leaders in movements by offering women activists evidence-based training, networking opportunities, and a space to exchange stories about their particular struggles and successes. Also, the IGLI Summer Institute receives support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Arca Foundation, the Compton Foundation, the Jewish Women’s Fund of Colorado, the Social Sciences Foundation of the University of Denver, and local philanthropists.
