The ALE Difference
ALE is a grassroots, volunteer organization. This allows us to be personal, adaptable, inclusive, and collaborative. ALE believes that collaboration and dialogue are the keys to expanding the field of leadership and developing leadership capacity. As leadership educators, our work is based on empirical knowledge and practical experience and the association promotes educational initiatives that are strategically designed to support people, organizations, and communities.
ALE believes it is critical to support its members through research and collegiality. Together, and through our annual conference, webinar series, publications, and other initiatives, our work to strengthen and sustain leadership education is being realized!
