    BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Network

    North American Regional Network Program

    Over the last months, we have once again been reminded of the importance of coming together to explore new possibilities and to understand how we can use this moment in history to think and act differently to create positive impact. Therefore, members of the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Network, in collaboration with the BMW Foundation, are promoting a workshop series created by Rosario Londono in 2016 and now tailored to the North American Regional Network.

    The Personal Accelerator is a space of possibility aimed at accelerating our Responsible Leaders’ growth and designing of their futures. The program consists of live online sessions, mastermind groups, guided coaching, self-creation, business modeling, and co-creation that introduces new mindsets, habits, and structures into their life’s rhythm.

    BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Network

    Responsible Leaders Gathering North America

    We understand the current situation as a crucial moment to strengthen ties within our Responsible Leaders Network in Canada and the United States, foster individual and group reflection on issues pertaining to the network, and facilitate collaboration.

    In a co-created process based in small meetings, sessions and open spaces, we aim to support the regional network on the most pressing topics for the region. The gathering starts with preparatory Listening Sessions with Responsible Leaders to craft the upcoming gathering by reflecting on their leadership path and how they can engage with peers.

    By nurturing personal and systemic development through our activities and the regional Responsible Leaders Networks, we aim to contribute to systemic change and to the 2030 Agenda.
