The Ethics of Capacity-building Leadership Across Cultures: A Conversation with Dr. Doug Heimburger

Room 2.07, AAU Campus

In this conversation, we will discuss leading teams cross-culturally and the challenges involved in empowering “followers” to lead in their own cultural and public health contexts. This conversation will take place in the first part of Professor Hayden’s Ethics and Leadership course.
