About us

CLP Institute is a nonprofit dedicated to the improvement of public leadership in Brazil. By preparing and empowering public leaders to promote change of behavior and to implement effective and ethical public policies, CLP Institute aims to contribute to the strengthening of democratic institutions and the demise of populism in Brazil.

We want to build the next generation of transformational leaders in Brazil by supporting the efforts of the Centro de Liderança Publica, a Brazilian social organization that has trained over 5,000 public leaders in the past eight years.

Our work

The CLP Institute believes that the poor diagnosis of public sector problems is the most common cause of bad public policies, and so we seek to prepare, empower and provide public leaders with the necessary tools to make better diagnoses, which, in turn, leads to better policies.

We support leaders by helping them enroll in the Master in Public Administration and Leadership (MLG), a post-graduate program offered by the Centro de Liderança Publica. The MLG is a practical course that qualifies, prepares and trains top-level civil servants in Brazil.

Master in Public Administration and Leadership (MLG)

The MLG is the most sought-after program in the public sector. Every year, after a selective process, around 35 participants, who are already working in the public sector and are already leading important projects in governments, are accepted into the program. The Master has 15 months in length and includes a one-week module at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Harvard Experience

The international immersion at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government is one of the main differentials of MLG and a crucial part of the program because it expands the horizon, knowledge and references of the students thus contributing to a change of attitude and mindset.

Support us

Show your support for public leaders who are committed to improving the quality of public policies in Brazil and tackling the problems that are impeding the progress of the country.

Last year, supporters like you helped 33 public leaders to complete the MLG. These leaders are now more prepared and empowered to implement good public policies and bring about transformational change in Brazil. But there is much more to be done. Your support will help us make an even greater impact in the coming years.
