Leadership requires patience and kindness, resilience and grit: a hard-edged hope.
Today’s challenges call for leadership with a different mindset and new skills: the ability to bring together diverse actors, to solve problems with people and to shift systems by mobilizing stakeholders to drive change.
Our Fellows Program has had a deep focus on developing moral leaders. We’re taking an in-depth look at the Fellows to better understand the power moral leadership can have.
We are setting out to build the vanguard of 10,000 leaders by 2022 who will lead change for the next 100 million.
Over the next five years we will build the vanguard to transition to a more inclusive, sustainable society built upon shared values.
