Abstract[edit source]

The Leadership Development Working Group is a diverse and global group of community members that have come together to support leadership development across the movement. The group members bring varied perspectives, experiences, cultures, and communities. They represent all 8 regions, 17+ languages, at least 15 communities, and different roles and years of movement experience. The group began its work in June 2022.

  • What has the working group learned so far about working together and about leadership development?
  • What is the group doing? What are their plans for the future?
  • How can community members be involved?
