New York, Los Angeles

This Global Leadership Summit experience will take place June 12–19, 2019 and combines an immersive educational tour with a three-day leadership conference.

Summit Tour: From New York City’s cutting-edge creativity to Los Angeles’ tinsel town glitz, explore the ways we communicate the ideas and issues of our time. While on tour, you’ll discover how both cities use media and art to drive conversation in our constantly evolving world.

Leadership Conference: Join teachers and students from across North America in New York for a weekend-long leadership conference happening June 14–16. Hear from world-renowned speakers on the Summit theme, attend expert-led workshops, and gain insight into The Power of Communication and everything impacting it today.

Using design thinking—a creative problem-solving technique that's been adopted by companies like Apple and Google—teams of students will develop and present innovative solutions to communication challenges around the world.
