The Sustainability Leadership Member Group serves as a connection point for ILA members and partners who are interested in embedding sustainability into their lives and leadership. We recognize the deep and interconnected social and environmental challenges that pervade our world, and we seek to find avenues in which we as leadership scholars, educators, and practitioners can address those challenges. We believe that we can no longer ignore the many signals calling for leadership aimed at making the world a better and more habitable place for all forms of life. We aim for the transformation of the field and practice of leadership to include sustainability in all its dimensions as a fundamental aim and goal of  ‘good leadership.’

Priorities and Projects

  • Developing a topical conference to deepen our work together – Sustainability and Beyond: Reimagining Leadership for Just and Regenerative Global Futures

  • Launching our Leadership Development Community on ILA Intersections to foster discussions and resource sharing
