How Leadership is Evolving: Leading from the Round, from Love and from Underground

The hierarchical, dominator, winner-take-all forms of leadership that brought us colonialism, patriarchy, white supremacy and capitalism have led us to the brink of global ecological, economic and social collapse. No surprise, then, that research shows significant improvements in most social and ecological systems and in addressing the climate crisis when  the status, education, reproductive rights and leadership of women increase. Come hear from a remarkable group of women approaching leadership from diverse backgrounds and angles, as they share what they see as emergent directions in movement-building, healing and transformative change.
