SILVER SPRING, MD., and GENEVA, Oct. 21, 2021 — Leadership experts from more than 60 countries worldwide are gathering in person in Geneva 21-23 October and online 24-26 for the International Leadership Association’s (ILA’s) global conference, Reimagining Leadership Together. Global leaders and featured speakers will meaningfully address how we can more fully unleash the abundant potential of people to collaborate across today’s many multi-faceted opportunities and complex issues.

The conference takes place at a pivotal moment. The UN Secretary-General has declared code red for humanity in the wake of the latest IPCC climate report. The world remains in the grip of a global pandemic. More than 84 million people got forcibly displaced, and inequalities are growing. So the ILA’s mission of “Advancing leadership knowledge and practice for a better world” and this year’s conference theme - Reimagining Leadership Together - could not be more relevant.

As Reimagining Leadership Together Co-Chair and Senior Director at the ASU Global Futures Laboratory, Ambassador Amanda Ellis shares: “The ILA has a critical role to play by convening the best leadership minds in the world around the complex problems that face us today. Reimagining Leadership Together is a great first step at figuring out together the positive, just, and regenerative futures we need to save our planet and ourselves.”

A partial list of featured plenary and spotlight speakers includes:

With a stellar list of keynotes and featured speakers, 400+ expert session and workshop presentations, and a diverse array of networking opportunities, Reimagining Leadership Together promises to inform, inspire, and invigorate.

There’s no better city to be having these conversations than Geneva, the heart and soul of global, multilateral organizations and a hub for international leadership. The Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) has been ILA’s onsite conference partner for the past two years. Former GCSP Director Ambassador Christian Dussey helped develop the conference theme before becoming the Ambassador of Switzerland to the Islamic Republic of Iran and stepping down from GCSP. Ambassador Thomas Greminger then took over as conference Co-Chair when he became GCSP’s new director.

Peter Cunningham, Global Program Chair for Reimagining Leadership Together and Head of Leadership at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy, notes: “In Geneva, we have a truly diverse international community of thought leadership across so many sectors - governance, global peace and security, science and research, business innovation, humanitarian issues. I’m truly excited by the prospect of this community colliding and connecting with ILA’s global community.”

ILA’s industry-leading HyFlex model makes it easy to participate for those who cannot travel to Geneva. Cynthia Cherrey, ILA CEO and President remarked: “Each day of the conference is live, in the moment, and designed to maximize the unique benefits of where it is taking place — first in Geneva and then online.”

The International Leadership Association is a worldwide professional association committed to advancing leadership knowledge and practice for a better world.
