Ahimsa Forum – Global Health Social Entrepreneurship and Faith Inspired Communities – June 27-30 2017

129 Participants from 35 countries

Thursday, June 29th – Session 7 : LEADERS

Faith inspired communities face cascading challenges in the workplace but they add very

specific values, perspectives and vision that are commonly undervalued. There are, however, remarkable

stories of success and behind them are special leaders. We need such leaders for a better world. How do

successful leaders stand out and what can we learn?
