Mexican delegation takes part in University leadership program
Yale recently hosted a delegation of Mexican Supreme Court members, governors of various Mexican states, ministers, academics, members of Congress and private sector leaders as part of the CIDE-Yale Mexico Leadership Program — the first leadership program conducted with a Latin American partner.
Recognized both nationally and internationally, CIDE is one of Mexico’s most important centers of teaching and research in the social sciences.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Yale University to provide leaders within Mexico the opportunity to tap into the resources of one of the world’s most pre-eminent universities and cultural institutions,” says Enrique Cabrero, director and dean of CIDE. “This program enables the participants to discuss major issues affecting Mexico today with not only leading thought makers, but with one another as well.”
The CIDE-Yale Mexico Leadership Program at Yale complemented the June 2011, September 2011, and January 2012 sessions that took place in Mexico City. All the sessions involved noted Yale faculty and practitioners with deep experience in their fields. The recent program at Yale included Ernesto Zedillo, director of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization and former president of Mexico; John Lewis Gaddis, director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy at Yale; and Thomas W. Pogge, Yale’s Leitner Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs. Participants also met with Arturo Sarukhan, ambassador of Mexico to the U.S., and CarlosM. Sada, consul general of Mexico in New York.
“Yale has long served as an institution where leaders in government service, the private sector, and civil society can learn from and connect with pre-eminent scholars,” says President Richard C. Levin. “Yale’s relationship with Mexico has grown significantly over the last decade and we believe that this new leadership program will further enhance this relationship.”
In recent years, Yale has offered highly customized senior leadership programs to select international partners including senior cohorts of Chinese government and university officials, members of the Indian parliament, and leaders in global health and the publishing industry. These programs build upon Yale’s tradition of educating leaders and public servants for all sectors of American society and around the world.
