The Global Solutions Forum

An international collaboration of SStS partners

What is the Global Solutions Forum?

The annual Global Solutions Forum brings together educators, non-profits, businesses, and SStS early career alumni to discuss the emerging appreciation and value of ethical leadership. Practicing professionals will provide strategies for inspiring and supporting ethical leadership as an educational aim for schools and as a means for improving culture, retention, and productivity in business.  

The cornerstone of ethical leadership is compassion, the ability to understand others’ perspectives and use that as a catalyst for supportive action. This theme will permeate the Forum through keynotes, breakout sessions, and plenty of time for participants to connect. This three-day event will run from October 24 to October 26, 2018.
