BUILDING RESILIENCE - Kenny Ausubel is the CEO of Bioneers, an organization that he co-founded in 1990 with his wife and partner, Nina Simons, for the purpose of disseminating sustainable alternatives to practices that contribute to climate change and to social injustice. In pursuit of this goal, he not only supports and encourages scientiﬁc and social innovation, but he communicates with a broad audience through several media outlets. He produces an international radio series, has written four books, contributes to The Huﬃngton Post, and has made an award-winning documentary, Hoxsey: How Healing Becomes a Crime, which screened at the Kennedy Center for members of Congress.
FULL SPECTRUM LEADERSHIP FOR ENGAGED ACTION: BODY, HEART, MIND, AND SPIRIT - Leadership and women's issues deﬁne the primary current interests of Nina Simons. In her writings and teaching, she establishes a close relationship between the two interests. She is convinced that leadership requires mindfulness, and she attests that this attribute is at the heart of the leadership practiced by women. Simons brings to the causes that she supports a characteristic originality, evident in her having co-founded in 1990 Bioneers (www.bioneers.org) with her husband and partner, Kenny Ausubel, and more recently, in pursuing the subject of leadership, she determines to "redeﬁne its landscape."
At the end of this presentation, The Center for Interfaith Relations' Sarah Reed Harris, Director of the 2014 Festival of Faiths, and Halida Hatic, Director of Community Relations and Development, join the stage as moderators.
