Inclusion. Impact. Integrity. Interconnection. Interdisciplinary. International Perspectives.

These are the values of the International Leadership Association (ILA) and they permeate everything we do, be it our conferences, webinars, publications, or member community activities. The world needs better leadership and ILA's mission of promoting a deeper understanding of leadership knowledge and practice for the greater good aims to make a difference. With members in over 70 countries, ILA is the only global network that brings together leadership scholars and researchers, educators and students, coaches and consultants, public leaders and executives. Why does ILA bring these people together? Because when we share our unique perspectives, experiences, and knowledge we come up with better, more integrated leadership thinking, practices, and solutions that can positively impact our complex global environment.

We invite you to learn more about ILA, explore our website, and see what our members are saying about ILA!
