The 2015 Academy for Contemplative and Ethical Leadership, sponsored by the Mind & Life Institute, was envisioned as a launchpad to support the development of a new field of inquiry that would address a growing hunger for leadership marked by the consciousness, conscience, and capacity to catalyze and influence larger systemic changes that are needed to address current social and ecological change.
The gathering in 2015 brought together over 100 individuals from around the world to share in a collective exploration of these topics with the goal of further catalyzing this field.
