"Advanced leadership" goes a step beyond great leadership by tackling today's complex, messy systems and creating solutions that affect entire communities and nations. These efforts have the potential to change the world as well as provide purpose and meaning in the lives of the leaders pursuing them.

This session will describe some of the inspiring projects that leaders in Harvard’s Advanced Leadership Initiative are undertaking, including the creation of affordable alternative energy for Africa, a business solution to the refugee crisis, and a new retail model to end food waste and improve nutrition in inner-city "food deserts."

The challenges, lessons, and tools from these ventures are relevant to executives, entrepreneurs, and activists at any life-stage.

Prof. Kanter’s book, “Move: How to Rebuild and Reinvent America's Infrastructure” will be available for her signing and sale at the event.
