The Central Eurasia Leadership Alliance (CELA) is now accepting applications to its 2020 Leadership Workshop at Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey!
CELA launched in 2002 as a major initiative to bring together the region’s most dynamic mid-career leaders with character, initiative and strategic vision in the fields of business, media, civil society, academia and government. CELA alumni describe the program as “the best I have taken part in”, “a vibrant network of brilliant people”. Now in its fifteenth Academy, CELA has grown into the region’s premier leadership training and network organization linking over 500 next-generation leaders and change agents across ten countries.
Up to forty outstanding individuals will be selected to attend this ten-day leadership event that will be intensive, challenging, and fun. English is the language of instruction during the CELA workshop and fluency is an absolute requirement.
CELA applicants are 28 to 42-year-old young leaders of Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, who are proficient in English and working in business, government, education and civil society.
The participation fee for 2020 is $2500 US. It partially covers the cost of your participation in the Academy (shared accommodation, food, and program) as the rest is subsidized by individual contributors to CELA. Participants are responsible for their own travel and visa expenses to and from Istanbul, Turkey.
