ILG Alumni Network

The ILG Alumni Network is a student-led initiative that serves to unite and connect all ILG alumni throughout the years and foster links with other Georgetown University's Latin America Leadership Program alumni. The network aims to promote governability and innovation in the region by organizing and hosting local events and strengthening collaboration amongst alumni beyond their time at Georgetown.

Since its inception in 2014, the Innovation and Leadership in Government Program (ILG) has equipped 139 public managers from 18 Latin American countries with analytical frameworks and tools to generate and implement innovative public policies in their respective countries.

Past Participant Testimonials

ILG allowed me to join a network of agents of change who are working to improve the realities of their own countries, and are determined to do so with exceptional values. Generating a synergy of ideas at a global level and acting locally is what unites participants throughout the program." — Ignacio Maldonado Yonna, Department of Coordination and Planning, Corrientes Province, Argentina

"The ILG program is very valuable for the training of leaders. The program provides participants with tools to maximize their strengths, come up with new collaborative visions, and have a more effective impact in the transformation of their realities. Sharing successful and innovative experiences with other countries in the region contributes to the development and strengthening of our communities." — Ingrid S.
