Leadership Development

Since 2007, the Global Leadership Conference (GLC) has been Burning Man’s premiere educational event, bringing together Regional Contacts and community leaders from around the world to share an intensive weekend of knowledge sharing and network building.

To meet the emerging leadership needs of our global community, GLC workshops have evolved to include not only skill-based knowledge but also higher-level learning, including the creation of business entities, insurance and risk management, grant writing, and other key organizational topics. Based on the notion that teaching and learning are as inseparable as speaking and listening, many sessions now focus on peer-to-peer sharing opportunities where groups present their projects and event experiences, and highlight their successes and challenges so that others may build on those ideas and grow to the next level in their own communities.

Participation in the conference is by invitation only, but selected sessions are sometimes made available to the public via webcast or on-demand video.
