Society Level

The final level of the SLA Program is based on the Society Domain of the Social Change Model, in which we examine the collective values of our large-scale social groups, including groups based on specific demographics or geographic boundaries. This level focuses on the macro-level of identity and social change, asking broad questions about the common values that we endorse and put into practice. These workshops and action steps approach leadership and community change from a holistic perspective, and help us to identify and practice ethical, socially responsible, and effective leadership.
