Philosophy, Religion, and Worldviews Member Community promotes an understanding of the healthy nexuses between philosophy, religion and worldviews and leadership consistent with ILA’s mission statement.
Philosophy, religion and worldviews touch the very core of human experience and address the assumptions people make about life. These assumptions structure people’s leadership theories and practices, often resulting in unevaluated consequences and implications. Evaluating leadership theories and practices at the most basic level will generate greater insights to the intersection of leadership with culture.
The Philosophy, Religion, and Worldviews Member Community encourages philosophers and religious leaders to actively participate in ILA as a means to hone their leadership skills for use in their respective spheres of influence and provide corresponding insights to ILA members.
Priorities and Projects
- Organizing a virtual community conference, The Essence of Personhood: Creating a Person-Centric Model of Leadership
- Encouraging members to submit proposals for the global conference on topics of concern to this community

The Narrative We Feed Gets Stronger
Our world is a place where benefits and burdens are not widely shared. We have an opportunity to envision a new way of moving forward, a new narrative for ourselves, our communities, and our world. What do we want to become? Our perspectives, and the choices we make, depend on the “wolf” we feed.
An Ontology for Public Kinship as a Leadership Platform
As we think how to open the country, we ask: How will we know what is safe? How will we structure the workplace? How will we educate our children? We need to give as much thought to what we will reimagine, or even just imagine, as the common good in American life and our relationships – one human to another.
