Please join the Center for Public Leadership for a discussion on the topic of leadership in the fight against corruption and guaranteeing constitutional rights with Mr. Fernando Carrillo, former Inspector-Attorney General of Colombia 2017-2021.

According to his experience leading this anti-corruption institution, Mr. Carrillo will share insights on how to integrate values in public service roles, as part of leadership development and the role of younger generations in driving change. The Inspector-Attorney General focuses on anti-corruption investigations, monitoring of public service provision and improving the effective guarantee of constitutional rights, especially those of population groups such as children, women, armed conflict victims and ethnic communities.

Mr. Carrillo, himself an HKS alum, has had an outstanding career in public service occupying twice the position of Minister in Colombia, Ambassador in Spain and leading positions in the Inter-American Development Bank. He was one of the student leaders who promoted the reform of the Colombian Constitution and was part of the Constitutional Assembly in 1991. This year is the 30th anniversary of the Colombian Constitution, which has evidenced significant improvements in society and some challenges remain.

This discussion is part of the CPL student-led events and will have an introduction by Maria Clemencia Monroy, MPA/ID 21.
