The ALE Difference
The Association of Leadership Educators (ALE) is a grassroots, volunteer organization that is 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!
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
The Association of Leadership Educators believes that leadership can be learned and practiced by anyone. Therefore, ALE should be a place for leadership learners and educators, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religious belief, sexual orientation, age, class, ability status, political ideology, socio-economic status, marital status, veteran status, gender, and gender expression. We believe that a diverse membership is best represented by a diverse board of directors, that diverse practitioners and scholars can be found in a variety of settings, and that the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion intersects with the work of leadership education.
