In this talk, Vishal will reflect on his own journey to build Dream a Dream, what’s he’s learned about empowering young people to overcome adversity and thrive in a fast changing world, and how that’s shaped his beliefs about the kind of leadership we need in today’s world.
In this inaugural talk, Fred reflected on his deepest learnings from building the African Leadership Group, how it’s shaped his beliefs about what kind of leaders we need, and what he’s learned through his work about how to develop this type of leadership.
Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic and racial justice uprisings have moved us to reflect on the type of society and world we want to share. These upheavals have illuminated the colonial roots of our current global development system and the limitations of medical and technological advances to reach the most vulnerable. At the same time, we’ve seen the power of collaborative movements and collective leadership in action. How can we leverage this historical moment to strengthen inclusive networks of diverse, adaptive, equity-driven leaders to effect change across entire ecosystems? This interactive discussion engaging diverse perspectives from funders, government, and local leaders, will explore how collective leadership is cultivated and how greater investments in this networked approach to leadership development can advance our shared vision for a more sustainable and equitable world. Co-organized by Emerging Public Leaders, Global Health Corps, and Teach For All.
