ILA Lifetime Achievement Award

ILA’s Leadership Legacy Program honors individuals who have made a significant lifetime contribution to the field of leadership through their published works and influential support of leadership knowledge and practice. Each honoree is presented with ILA’s Lifetime Achievement Award and has their work celebrated at our annual global conference. After the conference, recipients are added to the ILA Virtual Hall of Fame.

As part of its 10th Anniversary celebration in 2008, ILA began work on a new program that carries into both the future of the ILA and the future of leadership studies: The Leadership Legacy Program. The ILA thanks Larraine Matusak for her leadership in creating this project and for her founding sponsorship. We also wish to thank the Tobias Leadership Center for conducting oral histories with some of our recipients and to students at the Kravis Leadership Institute at Claremont McKenna College for contributing research on our recipients.
