The Center for Ethical Leadership is a national nonprofit that cultivates leadership and change capacity that advances social change. We support individual, institutional and community transformation necessary to creating healthy, just and inclusive communities.
Part think tank, incubator, and change agency, we help people develop and carry out change initiatives.
We are known for community-based collective leadership, ethical leadership, Gracious Space, Peacemaking Circles, and connecting people in learning through Confluences and the Community Learning Exchange.
Leadership Practices for Healthy, Just and Inclusive Communities
Date: September 26, 2017 12:30-4:30pm
Waiting for the bus… Shopping for groceries… Attending events... We see our neighbors and coworkers, but how well do we understand and connect with each other?
Our experiences with these common activities can differ significantly based on our social memberships. In many ways we live parallel universes with different realities often separated along demographic lines.
This workshop considers those questions, as it explores the interface between leadership and community in a society both blessed and challenged by cultural difference.
Using CEL’s framework for advancing social change in service of the common good, this workshop will examine leadership principles and practices that help build healthy, just, inclusive communities.

A peer learning environment where those who have a grasp on the fundamentals of GS can share their challenges, successes and a few tools. Adapting the four elements of GS (spirit, setting, invite the stranger, and learning in public) to the unique cultural patterns of our communities requires creativity, playfulness and persistence. This Community of Practice is here to support practitioners by connecting them to each other, and to provide resources as we shepherd our communities toward a more healthy, just, and inclusive future.
