ICL Champions

The Institute for Civic Leadership utilizes a network of renowned passionate global leaders from various fields, who relate their own stories and experiences in lectures, conversations and counsel. An ICL Champion’s time and attention is an invaluable resource and these well recognized leaders serve as up-close models and mentors to our ICL Academy Students and fellows.
