The series will comprise 9 one-day seminars over 3 years.

The timetable will be structured to allow extensive discussion and interaction. Each seminar will include papers from external contributors plus cumulative discussion throughout the day.

Alongside academic engagement, practitioners and other stakeholders will be invited to discuss the research papers in the light of their own experiences.

The aim is to stimulate debate and innovative thinking about how to develop policies and practices for ethical leadership and its development based on self-transformation and individual agency as alternatives to mere rule compliance.

Each seminar will bring together senior researchers, graduate students and early career researchers from a range of disciplines and national contexts, together with representatives of employers (including SMEs) and professional service organisations. The series will be organised by a multi-disciplinary team led by Professor Chris Mabey (Middlesex University) in conjunction with other academic partners and supported by practitioners.
