4 July 2020 | Online | 15.15 CET

The inequalities and injustice in the world call for healing and new leadership. It also needs our imagining and envisioning what the world, work and you can become. As we look at reconciling the many broken parts of our society, organizations and lives we listen to the stories of leaders who actively work to build bridges, find common ground, take a stand for what is right, find solutions and create the many new ways as bright lights in the world today. 

15.15 – 16.45 CET

- Leadership Panel

- Interactive Workshop

- Leadership Stories

- Closing

The session addresses creating peace and justice in the world, at work and in your life. Together we will explore how to embrace diversity through integrating rather than separating and ask how to make space for healing and deep learning at all levels. Besides looking at the many choices individuals and organizations must make at a strategy level; we will go further into how each and every one of us create the change needed in the world, as leaders, colleagues and citizens. What can you do? Who would you like to be? We welcome courageous conversations, invite you to speak from your hearts, and inspire the future into form through who you are and what you are becoming. Where are we now? Where would we like to be?
