Bardoo selected for prestigious McCain Global Leaders Programme

Vincentian lawyer, activist, writer, and NGO leader, Jeshua Bardoo, has been chosen among an elite group of the top 22 Global Leaders for the McCain Institute’s highly prestigious McCain Global Leaders Programme.

“I am humbled to represent Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Equal Rights, Access and Opportunities SVG Inc,” Bardoo said in a release, in which he reflected on the accolade. He was among a pool of more than 2000 applicants globally engaged in a lengthy and highly competitive selection process.

“ I am eager to dive into the McCain Global Leaders curriculum, learn more about the legacy of US Senator, John McCain, develop my leadership skill-set, and meet with some of the world’s most renowned practitioners, activists, journalists, political leaders, military members, and entrepreneurs who are leading the way in the fight for democracy and human rights,” Bardoo added.

The McCain Global Leaders Programme supports character-driven leaders from around the world who embody US Senator John McCain’s legacy of serving a cause greater than oneself. Structured as a 12-month fellowship and immersive learning experience, each cohort will include a diverse group of leaders from around the world who are working “in the arena” to advance democracy, human rights, and freedom. The programme is designed to advance each leader’s personal and professional leadership journey and impact by providing training, resources, and access to highly relevant regional and global networks with the goal of preparing today’s leaders to meet tomorrow’s challenges. In response to the growing threat that democracy, human rights, and freedom are under around the world, the 2024 McCain Global Leaders Cohort will focus on defending democracy.
