Leadership for Transformative Futures

A multi-part interactive learning experience

This series is for leaders of all kinds – organizers, network members, and those working for justice. Each of the three sessions will help leaders dig into the complexity and reactivity of the moment. Together we’ll explore the roots of a current critical issue, and IISC will offer tools with an eye on identifying opportunities to move towards transformative and equitable futures.

The only lasting truth is change. (Octavia E. Butler, 2012, “Parable of the Talents”). 
We are living at a moment of immense instability – economically, politically, environmentally, and socially. Leaders are expected to navigate the instability and model their values. But how do you do it? And what’s your foundational orientation to change? How is that showing up now? How is it serving or not serving you and the people around you? In this learning experience, we’ll look at examples of how past leaders have led during seasons of unrest. Then we’ll work together to generate ideas and approaches to guide our own unique situations. We’ll close by sharing a tool you can use to deepen your ongoing exploration of these challenges and opportunities.
