The Transatlantic Leadership Seminar on Leading through the Great Recession
Athens, Rome, Turin
November 1-7, 2015
Southern Europe is experiencing an historic economic disruption. Governments are rising and falling, businesses are struggling and failing, and ever larger segments of society are experiencing rapid declines in household income and financial security due to wage cuts and rising unemployment. To counter these negative trends, leaders from across sectors are innovating in search of solutions to service debts, finance growth, expand entrepreneurship, and engage youth. Such visionary leadership is essential for optimism, reform, and recovery.
Join GMF’s third Transatlantic Leadership Seminar to engage leaders in Greece and Italy about their strategies for recovery from the great recession, which now include options outside of the Eurozone. Frank and open discussions, combined with firsthand experience and peer to peer exchange, will accelerate learning about new trends in Southern Europe and networking with local leadership.
The Transatlantic Leadership Seminar on Leading through the Great Recession is available to alumni of GMF’s transatlantic leadership initiatives at a non-refundable tuition fee of $2,500, which covers all seminar activities and meals, as well as transportation and four or five star hotel accommodation. Participants are responsible for their own flights to and from the seminar. A four month payment plan is available at $625 per month. Register here.

Making Strides, Global Networks Forum: Advancing Women in Leadership

GMF is assembling an alumni delegation to join the alumni of other prestigious international fellowships for the inaugural event of the Global Leadership Consortium in Miami, Florida, November 17-19, 2015, for a forum on the topic: “Making Strides, Global Networks Forum: Advancing Women in Leadership.”
The Global Leadership Consortium brings together prestigious international fellowship programs, including GMF’s Transatlantic Leadership Initiatives.

Marshall Seminar on Democracy and its Future
April 6 to 8, 2016
The entire northern Atlantic — with Canada and the United States on one side and the European Union on the other—is free and democratic. Leaders across this wide area are pursuing solutions to increase social and political inclusion, advance women in leadership, and mobilize and expand civic participation. Yet these very same democracies that are setting the standards for the rest of the world to follow are also developing an acute crisis of confidence. Doubts about our ability to address rising inequality, to limit the influence of money on politics, to fight corruption, and to embrace diversity are wide spread.
Join GMF’s fourth Marshall Seminar to explore solutions to deepen and strengthen democracy, its values and principles. This two day event will provide civic-minded leaders from both sides of the Atlantic with a unique opportunity to share their knowledge, identify new trends, and build a common platform for action.
The Marshall Seminar on Democracy and its Future is available to alumni of GMF’s transatlantic leadership initiatives at a non-refundable tuition fee of $600, which covers all seminar activities and meals, as well as a four to five star hotel accommodation. Participants are responsible for their own transport to and from the seminar. Register here.

Marshall Seminar on Leading through Transition towards Global Engagement
September 21-23, 2016
On July 18, 2013, the city of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 Bankruptcy--the largest municipal filing in U.S. history. Sixteen months later, a coalition—including retired city workers, major philanthropic foundations, the state government, and the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA)—came together to form “the grand bargain,,” pledging millions of dollars to move the city of Detroit out of the red and into the future. Detroit’s path from bankruptcy to newly regained solvency, as well as its thriving creative economy that is attracting global attention, is a testament to the power of civic leadership, cross-sectoral coalitions, and strategic global engagement.
Join GMF’s fifth Marshall Seminar to examine leadership insights into how to manage transitions in your city or organization. The seminar will convene American and European alumni of GMF’s transatlantic leadership initiatives to explore strategies to build powerful civic-public-private sector coalitions; ignite a culture of small business entrepreneurship and creative development; and create a global image and brand.
The Marshall Seminar on Leading through Transition towards Global Engagement is available at a non-refundable tuition fee of $600, which covers all seminar activities and meals, as well as a four to five star hotel accommodation. Participants are responsible for their own transport to and from the seminar. Register here.
