PhD in Leadership and Change to Host Alumni Convening and Mini-Residency at ILA Conference

Antioch University’s PhD in Leadership and Change’s long-standing relationship with the International Leadership Association (ILA) means they have been involved with annual conferences in various ways since their inception in the mid-90s. This year they will again host a mini-residency and alumni convening surrounding the ILA Conference, which has been the program’s tradition since 2011, disrupted for two years by COVID-19.

The ILA conference is an unparalleled event that brings together leadership scholars and practitioners from all over the world. This transdisciplinary conference offers an opportunity to learn about the latest research in leadership, share best practices, gain new insights, and network with experts and influencers from various sectors and industries, including business executives, public leaders, authors, researchers, scholars, educators, coaches, and organizational development professionals.

The upcoming in-person conference entitled, “Cultivating Leadership for a Thriving Future” will be held in Vancouver, October 12-15, 2023. As always, many graduates, faculty, and students will be attending as well as presenting. The Antioch mini-residency will consist of a social event on October 11, the evening prior to the conference, several opportunities for connecting and networking during the conference, and specifically at our own Antioch reception event with new program Director and Associate Dean, Amy Rutstein-Riley, PhD. Lastly, after the ILA closing ceremony around 2:00 PM, faculty will do a debrief with students, and a prominent leadership scholar will conduct a 2-3-hour workshop/seminar open to both alumni and students, followed by a cocktail hour on the evening of October 15.
