Intersections of race, gender, class, sexuality, religion, ableism, environmental justice...
Leaders of the new century must not only be aware of environmental realities that shape the challenges and issues that they must confront. They must also be aware of the inner environments that shape character, civility, and a sense of community.
This place is not merely psychological or social but profoundly spiritual. Therefore, ethical leadership must begin from within. Ethical leadership at these intersections requires being in community with others; there is no such thing as an isolated, individual leader. In fact, rabid individualism attached to power and money is at the heart of our national and global challenges and creates confusion and perpetuates a frightened citizenry.
