Transparency and Accountability

October 31, 2017 - November 3, 2017

CCWA will be hosting five Belarusian political scientists, researchers, bureaucratic officials, and governmental executives on an International Visitor Leadership Program exchange that aims to augment good governance practices in Belarus. The professional program in Cleveland will highlight the role of “Sunshine Laws” in promoting transparency, data sharing between public and private sectors, and best practices in fostering fair and transparent economic development and business practices.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
