A pandemic, a climate crisis, and a global movement for racial equality, freedom, justice and the end of white supremacy. The consequences of inaction have never been more dangerous or more real.

The 2021 Humanitarian Leadership Conference will be an important event where we transition from rhetoric to action. Where we come together to interrogate what a genuinely transformed humanitarian system can look like based on economic, environmental and political justice for affected communities. Where the affected communities, local organisations, the business community and their national governments are the ‘humanitarians’.

The 2021 Humanitarian Leadership Conference will work to determine where change is needed and what a reshaping of the humanitarian ecosystem might look like, from the actors involved and ways of working to the very definition of what constitutes a humanitarian crisis.

The Conference will challenge traditional humanitarian systems, actors and perceptions through the following sub-themes:

  • Decolonising the humanitarian ecosystem
  • Leadership in a world of upheaval and crisis
  • Transformative ways of working
  • The political economy of aid and solidarity.

Powered through Delegate Connect to create a seamless, virtual experience from anywhere in the world, the Conference offers two days of panels, workshops and presentations that will challenge, explore and develop a new dialogue and understanding around the real humanitarians and how we can approach current challenges through systemic change.

Break-out sessions will utilise digital technologies for an interactive and immersive experience, and there will be networking opportunities via group and 1:1 video meets and messaging, and discussion boards.

You will also have exclusive access to the online platform for six months after the event so you can go back to re-visit your favourite presentations on demand, access resources and network with fellow participants.

Early bird registration closes 8 February 2021
