35th Annual Conference

July 14-17, 2024  |  Minneapolis, MN

Graduate Minneapolis Hotel

In an ever-evolving world, the landscape of leadership education is constantly shifting. The Association of Leadership Educators’ (ALE) annual conference stands at the intersection of innovation and collaboration in the realm of leadership development. This event is designed to inspire, connect, and empower educators, practitioners, and thought leaders in the field of leadership education. The 2024 conference will be held in Minneapolis, MN, July 14-17.

The 2024 annual conference finds its home in the vibrant and dynamic city of Minneapolis. Known for its unique blend of natural beauty, cultural richness, and forward-thinking innovation, Minneapolis provides the perfect backdrop for this transformative event. Minneapolis, like many cities, has faced a series of challenges in recent years that have had significant social, economic, and political impacts on the community; however, Minneapolis has also seen significant community resilience and activism in response to these challenges. Grassroots organizations, community leaders, and residents have come together to advocate for change and work toward a more equitable and just city.

Our conference theme, Building Bridges for the Future of Leadership Education, embodies the idea that leadership education is not a static discipline but a dynamic and ever-adapting one. It signifies the importance of promoting connections, breaking down silos, and embracing new perspectives to prepare leaders for the challenges of today and tomorrow. Our event aims to equip attendees with the knowledge, tools, and connections they need to drive positive change in leadership education. By fostering collaboration, embracing innovation, and championing diversity, this conference will help bridge the gap between current practices and the evolving needs of leadership development in an ever-changing world. It is a pivotal step toward ensuring that the leaders of the future are well-prepared to navigate the complex challenges they will face.
