GLEN    Collaborations

are projects led by members that focus on pushing the edges of methodology to support collective impact. They are intentionally designed to provide opportunities for smaller groups to share insights and co-design resources for the larger community.

Current Collaborations

Wildfire & Community Resilience Roundtables

This collaboration, in partnership with the Desert Research Institute, the National Parks Institute, and CASC is organizing a roundtable series in California for leaders in the fire preparedness & response communities and related stakeholders. It is the early stages of mapping the influence systems surrounding wildfire & community resilience policies. The intent is to find people who have real commitment to engaging stakeholders in fundamental rethinking of responses and capacities. 

How to Help


This collaboration is a mutual support writing group composed of GLEN Members who are blogging regularly. The group meetings regularly, shares writing, and is evolving practices for support and critique that will amplify all of our work. They support the generic blog on this site.

How to Join

Women of The GLEN

As we women come ever more fully into our own, we are creating the world we want. The purpose of the Women of the GLEN Collaboration is to foster a deeper understanding of feminine wisdom in leadership and to promote an integrated wisdom in men and women leaders for a safer, better, more humane and just world.

How to Join


This collaboration is to explore what it means to be a fully embodied and vital man in a time of “metoo,” complex gender distinctions, mounting global and systemic challenges, the elevation of authoritarian responses to complexity, and evolving roles for young and old. This collaboration will organize spaces for in-depth sharing and insights that we will share with the larger community through different forms of media.
