The Philippines is a country beset by complex divides. High economic growth rates in recent years have not translated into better quality of life for the country’s poor. Large income gaps among social-economic groups, weak institutions, and unequal access to basic social services and economic opportunities all contribute to a stagnant poverty incidence and other social ills.
The Center believes that effective leadership is key to addressing societal divides. The country has benefited from strong leadership, anti-corruption efforts, and a more transparent and accountable government but leading transformative change requires a new kind of leadership.
With the strategic reforms now in place to transform systems and institutions, achieve inclusive growth and ultimately uplift Filipinos’ lives, comes the recognition that all stakeholders must converge and collaborate. The issue of inclusion and giving voice to all stakeholders is thus significant for these initiatives to translate into positive outcomes and if sustainable peace and development in the country is to be truly achieved.
The Future Bridging Leaders Program aims to develop youth leaders who will be catalysts for social change. Bridging Leaders are set apart by their systemic view of complex issues, sense of ownership for the same, skills in collaboration and engagement with multi-stakeholders, and their innovative approaches to creating sustainable institutional arrangements.
