Today, I present at the Dalton Institute. The title of the presentation is "Creating an Ethic of Care for the Developing World: an Ethnographic Study." You can view the PowerPoint presentation at Building Global Leaders_dalton institute_howell_31january2014.pdf.

 

The presentation focuses on an ethnographic research project I conducted with one of my research assistants, Jeff Trudell. We wanted to find out what the leadership experience is like when students engage in international service experiences. The content of this presentation overlaps well with this year's Dalton Institute conference, because the theme of this year's conference focuses on engendering a "culture of care." Servant-Leadership is a natural fit for the theme of the conference, especially in regard to the application of Servant-Leadership in our international initiatives.
