On October 31, 2022, the ILF Program celebrated the graduation of its fifth cohort in Erbil. The ceremony awarded graduation certificates to the 50 participants who completed the program in 2022. The event capped a year-long program that included leadership workshops in Erbil, Beirut and Sulaimani in addition to targeted coaching and mentorship throughout the year.
Trainings taught a wide range of leadership skills, including forming coalitions, negotiations, advocacy strategies, and adaptive leadership. The graduates will now join the broader network of 200 ILF alumni and continue to engage with the program through their community-led initiatives and networks.
