#18: What does this moment require of leaders: A Conversation with Akaya Windwood

Many of us feel stuck in a paradigm that no longer serves us or life. Others believe “The Great Turning”, as Joanna Macy calls its, has begun?   There is also an emerging request that we Boomers humbly and courageously step beside the next generation of young leaders to support and learn from them?  Some call for   shared leadership as a model to be embraced.  Our guest Akaya Windwood, who serves as lead advisor on the Advisory Council of Third Act, explores these topics with our hosts.

Akaya Windwood has embraced transformational change since as a young black child she was of one of eight children to attend a school in San Bernardino California at the time of the integration process.  She has focused her energy on leadership and collaboration in the nonprofit and social benefit sector.  She is a faculty member at the Just Economy, founder of New Universal and past president of Rockwood Leadership Institute.  Akaya received the 2020 Vision Award from Middlebury College and the Ella Award from Ella Baker Center for Human Rights.
