Appreciating and Advancing Leadership
for the Public Wellbeing
February 14 - 16, 2010, Abu Dhabi, UAE
The Research Center for Leadership in Action and the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute recently convened 24 eminent scholars and practitioners committed to illuminating and nurturing leadership for public well-being in the Middle East and beyond. Whether working for youth and women's empowerment, engendering corporate citizenship, or organizing communities in conflict-ridden areas, they discussed leadership that transcends sectors, transforms ordinary citizens into agents of change, and opens up new public spaces for deliberation and engagement.
