Roche Holding

Alyse Nelson

Co-Founder
Vital Voices Global Partnership

Bridging leadership represents a movement away from less-inclusive forms of decision-making that have dominated much of human history. It’s the form of leadership needed to address the challenges we all face together.

Join just over 200 philanthropists, social investors, and business, government, activists, and nonprofit leaders from around the world as we gather in community to explore this form of leadership.

We will hear from our honorees  and share our own ideas and stories about creating positive change on issues of climate and sustainability, social justice, poverty, peace, and inclusion.
