Our 5th international conference was finished successfully online on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 October 2020. We are grateful to have Leiden Leadership Centre to host PUPOL2020 “Leadership in Progress”! Ben Kuipers and the local organizing committee team made fantastic work in these challenging and unusual times. Through many interesting lectures, workshops, and seminars, we have not only learned more about new ways of analyzing and conceptualizing public and political leadership, but we have will tighten our relations reinforcing a collaboration between academia and practice that is essential to advance public leadership. We also launched our Early Career Network (more details coming soon)!
Here you will find a brief summary in word and pictures of the two conference days!
We are preparing a series of seminars for next year encouraging students and practitioners to discuss theoretical, ethical, and methodological issues of public and political leadership. We will soon provide more details!
We are proud and excited to announcing that our EdX MOOC on ethical leadership will start on 3 July 2019. We hope you will join us and we look forward to continuing our discussions about ethical leadership in our societies!
Leaders today face pressing demands to address a multitude of global problems and achieve greater sustainability for people, the planet and future generations. This requires a more collaborative, ethical leadership approach. But what does ethical leadership really mean? Learn how to become an ethical business leader in New Zealand’s first-ever ethical leadership MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), offered by Victoria University of Wellington.
Ethical Leadership in a Changing World is a free six-week course on the prestigious edX MOOC platform that will introduce you to the theories and practices of ethical leadership, with a focus on organisations. Through the voices of recognised leaders from New Zealand’s private, public and NGO sectors, you will also hear about the main issues ethical leadership should address.
Individuals, organisations and society all benefit from ethical leadership. Find out how and why this value-based leadership matters to us all.
