Citizen Solution: Redefining Leadership – 2:30-3:48pm:


Global goals cannot be met if societies are divided, political opinion is polarized, core values are contested, deliberative processes are abandoned, and individual responsibility to the community is shirked. To capture the benefits and mitigate the dangers of fast-paced change, far-sighted and collaborative leadership will be required at all levels of society. Institutions and processes for decision-making will need to be built. Trust in these mechanisms for self-governance will need to be earned while communities must commit to maintaining the dignity of these institutions.  The requirements of leadership will include strategic focus, tactical agility, sure values and a commitment to continuous learning. Panelists will explore the qualities of ethical leadership and effective citizenship in an era characterized by change. And they will point to models for identifying, cultivating and supporting leaders of all ages, from all backgrounds, in all geographies.

Learning About Learning: In Conversation with … Robert Gallucci and Reeta Roy – 8:00pm:


Two years ago, The MasterCard Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation joined forces with several organizations to spur innovation in secondary education in developing countries. Through support for projects that explore critical questions, pilot new approaches and scale proven models, the Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (PSIPSE) demonstrates the power philanthropy can play in bringing together diverse entities to address complex social challenges. In a lively conversation, the presidents of these two foundations will elaborate on their experience and its implications for their thinking on shared learning, resource leveraging and leadership.
