I have chosen DCLead because: I have chosen DCLead because it is a lifetime opportunity for building bridges of collaboration, exchange ideas, and knowledge between leaders from all over the world interested in using digital communication to transform societies.
DCLead provides us the analytical and practical skills to rethink digital communication’s role in offering solutions to global challenges and prepares us to lead discussions about how policies and innovation in technology could promote the inclusion of disadvantaged groups and development among all sectors. I aim to use the knowledge I will acquire in the program to lead initiatives that put technology and digital communication at the service of endeavors that empower vulnerable populations and honor human rights.
