Lessons in Leadership: Courage and Conviction

October 6, 2021  • Ascend at the Aspen Institute

The importance of leadership, courage, and conviction in this moment of profound challenge and opportunity cannot be understated. We need leaders to pull us into a post-pandemic world, crack the walls of systemic racism so they come crashing down, and build a society that collaborates to create opportunity for those too often blocked from it. Reimagining a new world takes courageous leaders. Leaders driven by purpose, not protection of position, privilege, and power. We can learn much from leaders who draw strength from the values that guide them and are showing us the way to bring forth a better world for children and their families.
