18th Annual Values and Leadership Conference
"Ethical Leadership across Borders: Multiple Realities and Building Collective Capacity"
Research papers and poster proposals are to address the ethical dimensions of leadership within the context of multiple stakeholder perspectives and contributions for building collective capacity in and across educational contexts, institutions and organizations. Building from the core concepts presented at the 2012 conference in Brisbane, Building Capacity for Moments of Challenging Choices, this conference focuses on the ways in which multiple perspectives across geographic, professional, cultural, and philosophical borders contribute to building collective capacity during challenging moments influencing decision-making and action planning. Aligned with the theme of multiple realities, ethical leadership is broadly defined as affecting all levels and domains of the educational pipeline to include non-traditional leadership roles. Unique to this conference is a focus strand on athletics and the ways in which organized sports impact education and ethical decision-making in both K-12 and post-secondary settings.
There are four strands for research paper and poster proposals aligning with the conference's theme:
- Building ethical cultures: Risk-taking and enabling distributed ethical leadership across multiple domains to bridge the theory/practice divide.
- Technology and the changing facets of leadership: Exploring ethical leadership within online communities and non-traditional educational experiences.
- Man vs. machine: Understanding people as a part of and apart from the education or organizational system.
- Student voice and morally purpose of activism: validating marginalized voices across the border of underrepresentation.
The deadline for conference proposal submission is May 31, 2013. Please submit your proposal or any questions to Dr. Hollie Mackey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
