One thought on “Leadership and Uncertainty: Stay the Course

  1. Thank you for hosting this conversation James, and a sincere thank you to each of the speakers. I was particularly struck by Lesley Whiteye’s reference to The Doctrineof Discovery. In The Christian creation story around the myth of Adam and Eve, and the Doctrine of Discovery there is a distinct thread of thought that reinforces patriarchy and white colonial privilege.
