I am so happy to join the Myanmar Mission as the first Executive Director of the Myanmar Leadership Institute (MLI) which is newly established in Yangon. MLI combines ethics, life skills, analytical skills and professional competencies for a holistic approach to forming leaders in the fields of education, business and civil society in Myanmar. The goal of the institute is to develop leaders whose competence is inspired by compassion and who will contribute to nation building, inclusive prosperity, peace and restoration of human rights for all.
MLI is an initiative of Cardinal Charles Maung Bo and the Myanmar Jesuits under the able leadership of Fr. Mark Raper SJ who has been aspiring to establish an institute of this kind for quite some time. The motto of MLI is Learn to Lead – Lead to Serve.
