Trying times call for strong leadership that can offer hope, build community and see new possibilities.

Strong leadership need not only come from the top of our institutions and communities. We all have the need to address our discomfort and fear and the power to step in and offer solutions at this moment of crisis. The WLI webinar series helps us to understand the challenges of the moment, and in community with each other and with experts from around the world, offer sustainable solutions to some of the world’s greatest problems.

We hope these powerful conversations will inspire our community to make an impact on the critical issues facing us at home, at work and in our communities.
