The Coady International Institute’s 19-week diploma provides a critical and reflective framework for experienced development practitioners to enhance their leadership competencies and their abilities to motivate and support people in creating a better world for future generations. The program is inspired by cutting-edge action research and deeply rooted in a community-driven approach that draws on over 50 years of experience. The program strengthens the capacity of development leaders to ask the questions confronting development and social justice today – and proposes pragmatic strategies for change. Throughout the program a collaborative relationship is fostered among facilitators and participants to draw out lessons and insights from their rich and diverse experiences.
All participants choose a combination of mandatory, elective, and specialized courses. This flexibility enables each participant to customize the program to match personal and organizational learning needs. This allows everyone to deepen their understanding and develop skills in particular aspects of development work.
