Sustainable communities. Meaningful work. Better humans.

What

The Compassionate Leadership Summit is a two-day event focused on how we might bring compassion and mindfulness more effectively into our organizations and communities. Featuring leaders from various sectors, including corporations, non-profits, government, education and communities of faith.

Who should attend

The Summit is designed for members and leaders in our community who are committed to developing cultures of compassion, consciousness and civility in their workplaces and the contexts where they have influence.

How

By bringing together both those already engaged in this work, and those who want to learn how to begin, the Summit will provide attendees with three take-aways:

1) practical tools and best practices to implement in their workplaces and personal lives;
2) exposure to methods, approaches and experts to pursue post-Summit;
3) connections with other learners for collaborative and supportive working relationships.

Why

Compassion is a vital component to healthy and sustainable workplaces and communities. The vision that drives the Summit is a world in which awareness, justice, inclusivity and compassion guide our actions as a society, and emerge as norms of human behavior.

 

Early bird pricing until July 15: $300 includes 2 day admission with lunches, snacks, and refreshments included.
