    Responsible Leaders Program – Part 2

    At the BMW Foundation it is our mission to promote responsible leadership and inspire leaders worldwide to contribute to the United Nations 2030 Agenda. Together with a group of 40 carefully selected leaders from different regions and sectors we intend to build a contemplative and creative virtual space, where it is possible to make meaningful connections for our pursuit of a peaceful, just, and sustainable future. This Responsible Leaders Program is designed as a virtual journey and will run for a period of several months, concluding with an in-person gathering in Istanbul in early 2021.

    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.
