The Instituto de Liderazgo Simone de Beauvoir (ILSB) is a Mexican feminist organization for the strengthening of social leadership as a strategy to reduce gender inequality that places women and young people in situations that violate the guarantee of their rights, especially when they intersect with other systems of structural exclusion such as racism and socioeconomic or age inequality. ILSB’s institutional mission is the development of a critical mass of leaders with a gender, human rights, and intercultural perspective so that they can have an impact in the transformation of their realities and the dismantling of exclusion systems. ILSB aims to sustain in the long term its work of accompanying and supporting activists, organizations, and collectives that champion human rights and social justice agendas through their own voices. ILSB is also working to achieve financial strength it can apply to some of its underfunded programs and emerging work. (Strategy: Inclusive Governance)
