People around the World are Voluntarily taking up Leadership role for a Chosen Cause
They are showing up on camera with whatever they have to make a difference in the world, in the Leadership for Social Justice Project
Dr. Tyner reiterated the need for exemplary leadership in every sphere of the society, "This leadership challenge extends beyond the constraints of the four walls of my classrooms to homes, community centers, schools, and public meeting spaces across the globe."
She further buttressed her point by affirming that leadership should be a participant sport. "Now is the time to redefine leadership. Leadership is not a spectator sport but it calls for full participation of the global village. Leadership in the 21st Century must move beyond position or title to everyday people making a difference in the world. This process begins with the recognition that each individual has the capacity to positively influence the world around them through the exercise of leadership."
Since it launched, the campaign, starting with Dr. Artika Tyner herself, other leaders from countries around the globe such as Arusha, Tanzania to Xinzhen, China and across the United States from New York City to Phoenix have shared how they will lead change. Some leaders have committed to:
• Ending poverty
• Promoting gender equality
And other worthy cause too numerous to mention.
The campaign's number objective is to generate 10,000 leaders worldwide. Anyone wanting to participate should take a picture of himself or herself holding a sign for the cause he or she supports ("I will lead change by...") then post it on social media with the hashtag leadership for social Justice (#LeadershipforSocialJustice)
Planting People Growing Justice Leadership Inst.
