Leaders in Light is designed to help participants explore the unique challenges and opportunities each of our communities face, and come together in education and action to build towards a stronger inclusive democracy. Each leader will leverage their extended networks to multiply influence and maximize impact, working together to create systemic change and empower positive outcomes.
Leaders in Light has two components, the first being a series of monthly seminars over a nine-month period. Upon the completion of the seminars, the second component will feature practical application of the seminar content, in which participants will leverage their learnings to enhance their own work, raise awareness and inspire action in their respective communities, and catalyze change.
