LeaderStories

LeaderStories

LeaderStories began as a storytelling platform to capture the passion and insights of social purpose leaders who have benefited from an American Express funded program, including their signature program, the American Express Leadership Academy. Our goal remains the same: to share compelling stories that document the impact of professional development supports for emerging social purpose leaders across the globe. These committed and innovative leaders are the best hope for our communities, and for finding sustainable solutions to the most pressing problems facing our societies.

We invite you to explore the videos, read the blog and check out the FYI section at LeaderStories.org. If you have a story to share, or know someone who does, please contact us at inspire@leaderstories.org
