Welcome to The GLEN...

The Global Learning & Exchange Network— Awakening and Strengthening Creative, Collaborative Leadership to Face the Challenges of Our Times

We focus on . . . 


We hold EXCHANGES that regularly pool the global experience of members for insight, fellowship and witnessing. We hold both Zoom and in-person gatherings for this purpose.


We host longer term COLLABORATIONS  to build community resilience, empower bottom-up leadership,  value liminal space, lead as sacred practice, and transcend polarization and marginalization.


Members co-create self-paced LEARNING RESOURCES and practical guides for self development to support growing your collaborative skills and making daily practice part of your journey.

Learning Resources

Study our learning resources and support your professional development in a self-paced way.


Explore ideas interactively with a community of peers - both face-to-face and online.


Collaborate on action learning projects to address important challenges.

We Are Purposely Diverse ...and Dispersed  

Our members are consultants, social activists, community leaders, writers, designers, musicians, poets, scientists, ceremonialists, and visual practitioners from all over the world who are interested in helping co-create a more just, equitable, and sustainable future. 

Our members believe that having respectful, cross-boundary conversations and supporting each other in our hopes, visions, and innovations is critical in these times.

 When these conversations and learning take place over time, relationships deepen, new voices join...

...and people and systems awaken and transform.
