How justice advocates can benefit from thinking more critically about leaders and leadership
Conference Center at U of Pitt-Johnstown
450 Schoolhouse Road
Open to attendees of the 2015 Vegetarian Summerfest conference, happening July 8-12. Exact date & time of this talk TBD.
Do you ever wonder why social movements that are so needed, and appear to have so much support, do not advance more quickly, and at times even seem to move backwards? Is the problem flawed leadership, or is it our tendency to hand over our power and autonomy to others? This critical thinking workshop will help both newcomers and advanced justice advocates more mindfully identify and resist toxic leadership patterns that can lead to the disillusionment of altruistic activists and the co-option of social justice movements. By gaining a more nuanced understanding of these patterns, and by thinking of leadership in a nonhierarchical way, we can reclaim our own power, lead by example, and support and encourage healthy leadership in others.
