What makes an IEP Ambassador?
If you're motivated, want to expand your horizons and create positive change driven by data-backed research, then the IEP Ambassador Program is for you!
We are looking for individuals who are dedicated to promoting peacefulness and want to make the world a better place. Peace means different things to different people. We look to bring diverse perspectives to our program to equip people with the tools to effectively use and communicate our research in the way that suits them best.
The commitment for this six-week program involves completing three online modules about IEP’s research, which represents some of the most comprehensive, data-driven analyses within the field of peace and conflict prevention/resolution to-date.
To receive a certificate of completion and be qualified as an IEP Ambassador, candidates are then required to put their knowledge to use in the ‘Ambassador Challenge’ by organising a presentation for their network or community.
Program Format and Structure
With extra resources to download, this comprehensive program is delivered online through three modules consisting of engaging video and written material crafted by our expert team. Depending on your internet connection and reading speed, the time commitment for each module should not exceed 1.5 hours.
We understand that everyone runs on different schedules. While the program runs within a set timeframe of six weeks, the course itself is self-paced so that you can go through the material all at once or spread out over a few weeks.
Everything you need to complete the Ambassador Challenge is provided to you with downloadable resources and expert guidance on presenting, no matter who your audience is!
Throughout the course, you’ll be offered special access to webinars with our experts to ask questions and interact with others. We’ll be there to support you through every step of the journey.
