Overview

 

Around the world, talented, ambitious leaders are confronted with unique sets of challenges specific to a range of cultural, social, educational, and situational barriers. Here at the ILI, we focus on collaboration and professional development tools involving self-awareness in the workplace regarding gender, self-expression, systematic barriers to entry, recruitment pipelines, and maintenance of workplace diversity. This seminar empowers participants to accurately diagnose and manage workplace situations, master powerful communication tactics, and set a path for professional success. We understand diversity is more than a namesake but a source of increased fluidity, competency, and solvency in business, government, legal, and international development. Not only does this course consider questions of legality, ethics, and leadership authenticity, but it also provides instructions for best practices using casework and peer-reviewed research.

Key topics will include:

  • Leadership—aligning your leadership strategy and style with your own personal values and self-image
  • Values—emphasizing ethical communication and decision-making strategies across all levels of the organization

Overview

Prosecuting financial crimes, human trafficking, and cybercrimes often involves bringing together multiple people, often across many departments (and multiple jurisdictions), which can pose a variety of challenges. The covered material will be of interest to prosecutors, criminal justice personnel, judges, attorneys, and academics, specifically in developing economies where these crimes are emerging or may pose a particular threat. Drawing from the U.S. prosecutorial experience, this seminar will integrate the selected topics through class discussion. Participants will engage in in-depth study of each crime through discussion while developing their skills. More generally, the seminar will focus on the investigation, preparation, prosecution and required professional and technical skills in the context of these crimes.
