Systems Leadership: The Intersection of Person and Place
Systems leaders understand that to influence lasting change, our work must move beyond a focus on individual behaviors to a focus on underlying social conditions and the environment in which people live, all which impact health and well-being.
The evidence is clear—a person's ZIP code is the biggest predictor of a person's health and well-being. When compounded with individual experiences and adversity, living in communities with widespread poverty, lack of opportunity, and limited access to high quality services, further thwarts an individual's ability to overcome persistent and toxic stressors. Achieving widespread and sustained improved outcomes for people who experience multiple barriers to health and well-being requires moving beyond a focus on individual health behaviors to a focus on the social determinants of life.
The 2018 Alliance Executive Leadership Conference invites national experts and chief executives driving systems change to achieve meaningful, lasting change with individuals, families, and communities. Together, we will explore the intersection of efforts to build resilience at the person, community, and systems levels and to move upstream toward prevention. We will look at:
- Trends as well as national and community-driven efforts to address the fundamental determinants of resilience and well-being
- Leadership skills necessary to influence change at the organizational and systems levels
- How emphasis on social, economic, and human capital within local settings can unlock human potential in communities often left behind
