Welcome to The GLEN...

The Global Learning & Exchange Network— Awakening and Strengthening Creative, Collaborative Leadership

We are a Peer Based Action Learning Community

The GLEN is supporting leaders and change agents to step up to the collaboration challenges of our time with a three-fold approach.

Our committed members. . . 

  1. . . . inspire each other by hearing each others' stories, bearing witness, and pushing into inquiry. Our Exchange programs arise from member interests.
  2. . . . develop ourselves through member-led workshops and longer term action learning collaborations. 
  3. . . . co-create tools for ongoing learning and practice, knowing that growing collaborative skills takes time and requires becoming a perpetual learner.

Taken together we believe we can start creating the future we want now.


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.

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.
