Conscious Leadership Conversations

Monthly Zoom Session

CLCs are our Conscious Leadership Conversations. Every month a Provocateur presents an idea focused on Conscious Leadership and participants have the opportunity to discuss, react, and share. The purpose is to provide a space for collective reflection and conversation. CLCs are offered for free and held monthly via Zoom.

Upcoming CLC on THURSDAY, May 23 at 12:00-1:00 PM ET

We are excited to announce Teresa L. Gonzalez as our provocateur for our May CLC titled, Cultivating Shared Leadership for Sustainable Organizational and Community Impact through Co-Design.


This session is dedicated to sharing best practices and tools aimed at engaging organizational leaders and facilitators in the spectrum of shared leadership models with a focus on how to co-design in building power and sustainable structures for the future.


At this month’s CLC, participants will:

  • Learn about organizational models and values that support shared leadership.
  • Learn self-awareness practices that awaken cultural humility and wholeness.
  • Learn how to move from conflict and tension to trust and consensus building.


Teresa L. Gonzales (she/her/ella) is the Principal Executive of Design Impact, a nonprofit social impact consultancy firm that collaborates with community groups, social service agencies, philanthropists, and other changemakers to apply creative and inclusive approaches to complex social challenges.
She is a seasoned organizational and systems change practitioner, coach, and executive leader, with over two decades of nonprofit and community experience addressing multi-sector issues affecting the well-being of individuals, families, and communities facing injustice, inequities, and violence.
Her contributions have garnered her recognition, including the 2020 California Nonprofit of the Year award from California’s Assemblymember Rob Bonta, the Woman of Influence from Albuquerque Business First, the Jeanne Gauna Social Justice Spirit Award from the Southwest Organizing Project, and the Sarah Belle Brown Community Service Award from the University of New Mexico’s Office of the President.
