New training program for Latin American leaders focuses on public innovation and govtechs
In order to strengthen the competencies and skills of regional leaders who work in public administration, the private sector and civil society, the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) and Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) are running a Training Course on Governance and Public Innovation for Leaders in Latin America and the Caribbean. The new course, to be launched in June, will address topics such as public innovation, govtechs, digital transformation, gender and social inclusion, agile methodologies, climate change and the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. The deadline for applications is May 16.
The program was developed by CAF, together with 17 universities in Latin America and the Caribbean, with the aim of offering a practical and applied approach to governance and public innovation, focusing on transformative public leadership. The six-month course will discuss the region’s strategic sustainable development issues, with a focus on public innovation, skills and governance tools to achieve the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Classes will start on June 1, 2022 and run until November 30, 2022, and there will be 155 hours of classes in all. At the end of the course, students must present a project, and the one with the best evaluation will be invited to an in-person bootcamp lasting one week, in December, in Washington, D.C., with all expenses paid by CAF.
Those interested in taking the course must go through a selection process, based on resume analysis. CAF will pay part of the course’s costs.
Participants who successfully complete all the course’s activities will receive a final digital certificate issued by CAF and FGV, attesting to their participation and approval.
