The Indigenous Leadership Development Institute Inc. is a non-profit organization established to build leadership capacity in Indigenous people. ILDI is run by Indigenous people and directed by a volunteer board reflecting the diversity of the Indigenous community. This board identifies specific training required to produce able and accomplished Indigenous leaders.
Through research, the institute determines the state of Indigenous communities-what is working and what is not. Research results are shared and can be used by leaders when advocating issues. The results also help us determine the areas where capacity building is most needed.
By actively promoting good governance…by identifying needed training…and by providing unique educational and skill-building opportunities…the institutes helps prepare Indigenous people for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
