The Acumen Academy Inclusive Economy Leadership Program (Southeast Asia) is a 10-week leadership accelerator designed to equip you with the character and competence to address the complex challenges of poverty and economic inequality. During these 10-weeks, you will take part in weekly virtual learning labs, virtual group discussions and work on individual assignments.

Acumen has been changing the way the world tackles poverty for more than 20 years. Over that time we’ve gathered valuable insights that we’ve taught and field tested through our various leadership programs. We have synthesised and made these lessons available for leaders in Southeast Asia through this 10-week leadership accelerator.

This program facilitates deep introspection, cohort building, and an exploration of leadership concepts that are especially useful for those trying to tackle the complex problems of poverty and inequality.

You’ll learn how to see a problem more clearly, understand how to engage powerful stakeholders, explore your personal philosophy on what it takes to build a good society and more.

The experience is further enriched through a diverse cohort. Change will require leadership from all areas of our economy. You’ll join leaders from the social enterprise, nonprofit, corporate and public sectors to explore what it takes to build a more inclusive economy for your community and all of Southeast Asia.
