C4C: Leadership for Systemic Change

Bringing about transformation in international cooperation is complex: effective answers to today’s problems require outstanding leadership skills and collaborative problem-solving from decision-makers and leaders around the world. Innovative approaches in leadership development create space for new perspectives, interdisciplinary exchange and result-oriented solutions.

On 8 September, GIZ and the World Bank presented two of these approaches during their joint "Leadership for Systemic Change" event at the GIZ Representation Brussels: the Global Leadership Academy, implemented by GIZ and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and World Bank´s Collaborative Leadership for Development. More than 60 participants on location and online seized the opportunity to listen to insights, share experiences and to discuss the potential, limits and contribution of these approaches to long-lasting systemic change with the two speakers, Wiebke Koenig (GIZ) and Roby Senderowitsch (World Bank Group).

The event was part of the Capacity4Change (C4C) event series organized this time by GIZ in cooperation with the World Bank Brussels office. The idea behind C4C is to enrich the Brussel’s policy debate with practical knowhow and implementation experiences. The session was live streamed and is available on YouTube.
