The YTL Leaders Lounge is the webinar series for alumni, members of current cohorts, and other interested young professionals hosted by the Young Transatlantic Leadership Initiative. The webinars give the opportunity to connect with interesting people and to learn about leadership skills, personal development, and transatlantic relations. Our speakers share their experience and discuss current topics, leadership skills and what the next generation of leaders need to know. Each webinar is open to the general audience. The link to the next webinars can be found below, on our social media accounts, or in our monthly newsletter. The series was started in May 2020 with a conversation between Yasir Naqvi, CEO of the Institute for Canadian Citizenship, and the YTL19 and YTL20 classes hosted by Robin Arens. All public webinars are recorded and will be accessible after the date.
YTL Leaders Lounge
with Jean-Patrick Villeneuve
24 February 2022 at 6.30 PM (CEST) / 12.30 PM (EDT) / 9.30 AM (PDT)
Sometimes, it takes several tries to get something right: After having to postpone, Jean-Patrick will join our Leaders Lounge at the end of February.
He is Professor of public administration and Director at the Institute of Communication and Public Policy of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI).
We are excited to have him join us! His research focuses on issues of transparency, anti-corruption, accountability, and civic participation. He is particularly interested in the limitations, difficulties, and impacts of implementing these governance initiatives. He also analyses the metrics of governance with a special focus on developed ‘low-corruption’/‘high transparency’ countries.
