Executive Leadership Conference Explores U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals

What is the impact of leadership in the 21st century? How can you use social media in service to others? Can we create a sustainable world with the Golden Rule at the core?

These are just a few of the questions and topics set for discussion at the upcoming ANIMA Executive Leadership Academy, “SDG Goal Zero: ANIMAting the Common Good,” a one-day immersive seminar at the College of Mount Saint Vincent on Thursday, April 25, 2019.

The conference welcomes a series of panel discussions, workshops, introductions, and keynotes presented by globally-renowned industry leaders such as: Kim Polman, Founder of Reboot the Future; Julie Kirshner, Co-Founder of SuccessReady; Benjamin Bernstein, Director of Changing Our World; Atti Worku, Founder and CEO of Seeds of Africa; Michael Hoffman, Chairman of Changing Our World; Deirdre Gaughan, CEO of Soulful Impact; Gary Giglio, Head of New York Private Wealth Management at Goldman Sachs; Dr. Veronica Ruelas, Founder of AshramChic and President of the ThirdEyeVision Foundation; Valerie Keller, Co-Founder and CEO of Imagine; Richard Stone, CEO of StoryWork International; and Pamela Newman, President and CEO of The Newman Team at Aon plc, among others.

Register for the 2019 ANIMA Executive Leadership Academy

In a global, increasingly interconnected society, those who create the greatest impact will be those who serve, mentor, and inspire. The conference explores this concept through the ANIMA model of leadership, which symbolizes a truly soulful approach to the enormous privileges and responsibilities embedded in leading others.

“The Academy provides a unique opportunity to engage in a thoughtful exploration of the role leadership plays in serving the common good and the obligation of the individual to work towards achieving the fullest potential of his or her unique vocation, both personally and professionally,” said Ms. Gaughan, who, in addition to her role with Soulful Impact, is also the Assistant Director of the ANIMA Academy. “We are thrilled that the ANIMA Executive Leadership Academy is continuing its successful partnership with Mount Saint Vincent and we look forward to an especially interactive and dynamic event on April 25.”

This is the second ANIMA Executive Leadership Academy. In 2018, the Mount hosted “Leading for the Common Good,” highlighting global philanthropy and social entrepreneurship.

All are encouraged to join the ANIMA Executive Leadership Academy on April 25—network with experts, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and academic professionals, while exploring and understanding how business can commit to sustainable growth and align with the next generation of philanthropic leaders to change the world through the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals.
