NLI and its partner, Initiative for Global Development (IGD) have agreed to implement a new program to deepen the leadership skills and competences of NLI Associate Fellows. The initiative tagged, 'Business and Leadership Exchange Program' was jointly developed by NLI and IGD.

The program will commence in 2015 and enable NLI Associate Fellows travel to the United States to go through mentoring with the American Business Executives during a two week period. NLI Associate Fellows will learn from IGD accomplished leaders in the areas of best business practices and values-based leadership. Following the two week period, the Associate Fellows are expected to maintain regular communication with their IGD mentor. Further details will soon be announced.
