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.

Next webinar

After the technical problems and the incident last week, we will have another try to have our first YTL Leaders Lounge. The webinar will be on June, 4th at 6.30 pm (CEST) and we will host Kyle Matthews. Kyle is the Executive Director at the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies and a vocal advocate for human rights. Before joining MIGS, he worked with the UN and Care Canada. To get a first impression of Kyle's work, we can highly recommend listening to the Corona Diaries Podcast, where Kyle discusses with his guests topics such the use of artificial intelligence or disinformation campaigns during the Corona times.

Especially in these days, we believe that that it is time to kick-off our project with a vocal activist for and a champion of promoting human rights worldwide.
