ELP online community Leadership for a Better World

Type: Cluster meeting
Speaker: Geraldine Matchett
Date / Time: 17 June 2021 17:00 till 18:30
Venue: Online

How do you want to contribute to a better world from your professional context? That is the key question in this online community, which is running in eight sessions from October 2020 until June 2021. Each session starts with a thought-provoking speaker, followed by moderated breakouts, and runs from 17:00 until 18:30. ELP wants to support leaders to take a step back and make sense of the world we are living in. They are invited to engage into meaningful dialogues that go beyond the transactional exchanges of a normal day at work, especially now everybody is working from home.

The program is as follows:

17:00 Plenary opening. Setting the tone.
