In 2024, the East-West Center will host a hybrid six-week, US-funded Pacific leadership development program that will include an online module, a residency in Hawai’i and a field immersion in Washington DC. This program will provide individuals from a Pacific Islands Conference of Leaders (PICL)-member country/territory/State of Hawaiʻi the opportunity to enhance their leadership capacities and build a network with other leaders from across the Pacific and the US. Participants will engage in experiential learning exercises in a cohort of 25 early to mid-career professionals from all sectors.
RPIL attracts participants possessing high leadership potential and a commitment to serve their national and regional development goals. The curriculum for these rising leaders will be centered around the 2050 Strategy for the Blue Pacific Continent and thematically organized in the following areas of critical importance to humanity identified in the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership. The program strengthens participants’ knowledge and understanding of key regional economic, social, political, health, educational and environmental issues, and cultivates culturally sustaining leadership capacities.
