On January 25, Alumnus Johnson Badawi (YES ’11) graduated from the Future Bridging Leaders Program (FBLP), a year-long leadership development program and social innovation laboratory based on the core principles of the Bridging Leadership (BL) framework – that leaders bridge societal divides, rather than highlight and deepen them.

The program, which is organized by the Asian Institute of Management TeaM Energy Center for Bridging Leadership (AIMTEC), aims to enhance the collaborative leadership and change management skills of Filipino youth to empower them to spark meaningful innovations in their organizations and communities. 

Participants were given an opportunity to pitch their prototypes at the public recital and graduation. Johnson pitched his “I Am Here” mental health awareness campaign and capacity-building program which aims to increase the utilization of university mental health services.
