ILA's 23rd Global Conference
20-23 October 2021 in-person in Geneva, Switzerland & live 24-25 October 2021 in the Virtual Realm!
Together, how can we more fully unleash the abundant potential of people, including ourselves, to collaborate across today’s many multi-faceted opportunities and complex issues? How can leadership be a greater catalyst for societal and eco-systemic advancement and create the conditions for more equitable relationships across divides, even across lines of conflict? It is time to expand what leadership means and who can lead. We invite you to join us in Geneva 20-23 October and/or live online 24-25 October for Reimagining Leadership Together. Together, let’s reimagine leadership for a safer, more just, and inclusive world.
This Year's HyFlex Global Conference offers...
The flexibility to attend in-person in Geneva and/or virtually online as we reimagine leadership together.
From 20-23 October, live in-person events will be offered in Geneva including pre- and post-conference events, keynotes, and multiple presentation sessions.

Plenary sessions (Keynotes & Keynote Panels) bring together top leaders and thinkers to discuss complex leadership questions with ILA’s signature bridging of theory and practice. They challenge us to think more creatively and inspire us to reimagine leadership together. Additional plenaries plus dates and times of each will be announced soon.
