University of Akron Press
The mission of the International Journal of Ethical Leadership is to spread awareness of the fact that every worthwhile human endeavor requires the application and embodiment of ethical leadership in order to succeed, endure, and produce positive outcomes for present and future generations. Our aim is to expand the transdisciplinary, international conversation that is ongoing around the question of what ethical leadership requires. We hope, with each issue of this journal, to highlight a wide range of perspectives on ethical leadership in theory and action around the globe. Our intention is not to endorse particular opinions, but to host a trusted forum for readers to explore a diversity of views.
