Women Leaders and Their Influence towards Collective Transformative Learning
Abstract: In this session, participants will be briefly introduced to the case analysis methodology and findings from our published edited book, Women Community Leaders and Their Impact as Global Changemakers (As a note, all royalties from the book are donated to the change agents’ non-profit organizations highlighted in the narratives.) After sharing the qualitative analysis process and the connection to collective transformative learning, the presenters will open the virtual floor for questions and comments. The focus of the session will be discussing one of the cases from the book examining how the Cultural Transformation Framework can be applied. Based on the session size, breakout groups will be created with an assigned facilitator to promote conversation and take notes. The session will close with highlights from each group and closing learnings.
ITLA members attend this event for free.
