On Thursday, September 3, The McCain Institute’s 2014 Next Generation Leaders (NGL) participated in a graduation ceremony marking their completion of the U.S. development portion of the program. This year’s participants represent 12 countries and a variety of professional backgrounds, and have demonstrated a personal commitment to character-driven leadership already in their careers. Mrs. Cindy McCain, Chair of the Human Trafficking Advisory Council for The McCain Institute, was the guest speaker.
The McCain Institute’s flagship activity is its Next Generation Leaders (NGL) program, designed to identify, train, network and empower a diverse group of emerging, character-driven leaders through one year of targeted professional and personal development. With a core focus on values, ethics and leadership, the goal of the program is to create a capable and lasting global network of character-driven leaders who shape the world we will inhabit in the future.
