ISOL 2015 aspires to again bring together the corporate leaders, academicians, representations from Governmental organizations and non - governmental organizations etc. from USA, Europe, Australia, Africa, Middle East and Asia to systematically explore the nature, determination and implications of the spiritual dimensions of global economic development. The central theme of the deliberations is to address the ethical and moral value that needs to be reinforced for a healthy business environment that is sustainable for individual, societal and economic growth.
About the Conference:
The modern business theories in the race of its applicability for financial gains have lost touch with its basic tenets of moral, spiritual and ethical values. The values that religions have infused into the humanity seem to be thwarted. At this crucial juncture, we at ISOL Foundation look forward integrating the religious institutions in integrated development and applications of spirituality and ethics in developing a consensus on Human Consciousness in Management Systems.
Way back in 2007, the Foundation had launched a Series of International Conferences on Integrating Spirituality and Organizational Leadership. Since then, every alternate year, we have been organizing this mega event: 2007, 2009, 2011, & 2013 and 2015 is planned at the Fullerton Hall, The Art Institute Chicago.
The world Parliament of Religions in 1893 was the first attempt to bring the east – west spiritual traditions at one platform to discuss the problems of the world. In 19th Century in India a Sage – Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa (the spiritual master of Swami Vivekananda who was one of the speakers in the 1893 World Congress) after practicing all the religions boldly declare – As many views so many paths but God is one and talked about fellowship of religion for the religion of humanity. This is the core of the initiatives taken by ISOL Foundation.
As a curtain raiser on the quasi centenary celebrations of the historic lecture by Swami Vivekananda ISOL Foundation announces the 5th International Conference on Integrating Spirituality and Organizational Leadership in Chicago.
