Courage to Lead® for Social Impact is a renewal and leadership retreat
series that will create the first cohort in a new network of leaders across
the greater Seattle and Northwest region. The program is for people
who are committed to making a positive difference in the world, while
strengthening the fabric of social equity in our community. We envision
a safe and welcoming place to foster reflective leadership and forge
trustworthy relationships among others with similar passion, helping us
sustain each other in our long-term commitments. While most of us are
focused on the external demands of change, we also need a place to
cultivate and nourish our leadership within, in the company of wise and
Courage to Lead® for Social Impact is for you, if:
• You are a leader and a decision maker who is working toward a
more just, compassionate and healthy world.
• You want to be in community with people who you’ll come to
know, trust and support as allies.
• You want to take your leadership to the next level and you
welcome introspection and personal growth.
• You want to learn with a diverse community of leaders from
across professional sectors in order to sustain your commitment
to solving complex social issues.
Join other leaders from Greater Seattle and the Pacific Northwest in this
deep dive into the heart of leadership. Through storytelling, reflection
and facilitated discussions, you’ll have an opportunity to consider your
heart’s work, renew your energy and passion for your cause, and
strengthen your leadership within a community of practice.
Whether it is called diversity, equity and inclusion, multiculturalism, or anti-racism, the role of leading equity initiatives in the workplace can be challenging. Many organizations have created these positions in the past ten years, and those hired are coming in without any clear direction. Equity leaders often feel isolated and can quickly become frustrated or feel overwhelmed.
However, if we can come together to collaborate and learn from each other’s mistakes and successes, perhaps we can craft an easier path forward. As Paulo Freire said, “We make the road by walking.”
This workshop provides an opportunity for equity leaders to share strategies for organizational change, problem solve some of the challenges they face, and to network. Each participant will be asked to bring an example of a success story, strategy, or tool to share. Everyone will be given time to discuss challenges and hear the best thinking from their colleagues.
Facilitators Caprice Hollins and Ilsa Govan will share a model of multicultural organizational development and strategies for change we’ve identified over the past eight years in our work with hundreds of organizations.
We’d love for you to be part of this community where we share ideas to successfully address equity, inclusion and social justice in organizations. Our goal is for participants to come away with new tools for this important work as well as supportive partnerships they can lean on for many years to come. Won’t you join us?
- Learn tools for engaging in courageous conversations about equity work.
- Be able to identify stages of multicultural organization development and strategies for moving equity initiatives forward.
- Collaborate with other equity leaders by sharing resources and best thinking around challenges.
- Develop a network of equity leaders for on-going support.

Difference can stimulate creativity and the kind of breakthrough innovation organizations need to address today’s challenges. The best decisions happen when differences are included, valued and worked with effectively.
However, differences can also activate exclusion, defensiveness, and aggression in ourselves and others. These reactions block clear thinking and skillful action. Over time this pattern hardens us from the inside out and can create serious dysfunction in a team, organization or community.
Whether we work in corporations, governments, nonprofits or schools, we inevitably encounter strong differences.
- How can we appreciate differences without seeking to change others or have the differences divide us?
- How can we work together in the midst of disagreement?
- How can we use our differences to make us stronger and more creative?
If you are looking for a better way, and are daring enough to explore new practices, please join us. Together, at this 3 day leadership intensive, we can learn how to engage with difference and, in doing so, better engage the wisdom in our groups or organizations.
At the conference, you’ll find a safe yet challenging place to stretch your way of thinking and open to possibilities for leading with more success in your organization. The curriculum is leading edge, deeply personal and highly engaging. This unique leadership development experience not only expands your thinking and skills, but also connects you to a talented network of professionals.
The conference brings together expertise in the practices of conflict engagement, authentic leadership, and mindfulness. Drawing from proven methodologies, the seasoned faculty team brings a multi-faceted approach to engaging with differences. Far from just adding another “tool in your toolbox,” this event is intentionally designed to work at a deeper level of thinking and acting in the world.
Current research concludes what many of us intuitively know—that traditional leadership programs fall short because they place “too much focus on delivering information and content and not enough on the hard work of developing the leaders themselves” (Nick Petrie, Center for Creative Leadership, 2013). For 17 years, ALIA has been ahead of the curve, integrating mindfulness, creative process, and systems thinking into an integrative model of authentic leadership development. ALIA is part of the Authentic Leadership Center at Naropa University www.naropa.edu.
