Event description

Description

How do we lead in an environment driven by rapid technology advances, divisive politics, environmental challenges, economic shifts, and racial, cultural and religious difference?

Join us for a dynamic series of micro-sessions curated from the Ignite Institute’s new Certificate of Leadership and Innovation for an Unpredictable Future, designed to prepare ethical, socially responsible and resilient leaders.

This single-evening preview will feature scholars of ancient wisdom, socially-responsive leaders, and revered business innovators. This blend of leaders is uniquely suited to help mid-career professionals harness our rapidly changing environment as an asset, deepen their social and environmental responsibility, and cultivate personal and professional resiliency in a collaborative and visionary atmosphere.

Panelists will address how ancient wisdom informs innovation, then discuss how we can lead in our neighborhoods and our workplaces.
