About the HOW Institute for Society

The HOW Institute for Society is seeking a Program Facilitator to join our growing team. The ideal candidate will find deep resonance with the HOW philosophy and be committed to our mission of building and nurturing a culture of moral leadership, principled decision-making, and values-based behavior that enables individuals and institutions to meet the profound social, economic, and technological changes of the 21st Century.

The HOW Institute for Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening a world rooted in deep human values and rekindling a social fabric of truth and trust. The Institute channels philosophical reasoning to address modern problems and is animated by a belief in the urgent imperative of HOW. Today, HOW we do what we do matters more than ever and in ways it never has before.

Our work builds on seven imperatives:

  1. Institutions must be guided by values and shaped by moral leaders.
  2. Moral authority and formal authority must be united to create meaningful and enduring impact.
  3. Individuals must be guided by moral principles and frameworks.
  4. Trust and shared truths are essential to bringing people together as communities, organizations, and collaborators.
  5. Business and society must shift focus from “how much” to HOW we behave and HOW we can work together to build something greater than ourselves.
  6. Healthy values-inspired communities are the building blocks of a better society. We must learn what makes them work and create models to scale their success.
  7. Leaders must frame paths ahead as journeys of significance, embracing the inevitable ups and downs, but remaining resilient and committed.

About the NXT-GEN Fellowship for Moral Leadership

The NXT-GEN Fellowship is an accelerator for emerging organizational leaders navigating our increasingly interdependent and morally activated world and workplace. Drawing on lessons from history, current events, and moral philosophy, fellows wrestle with the principles, nuances, and applications of the pillars and practices of moral leadership through discussions, readings, videos, workshops, case studies, and guest speakers. Supported by 1:1 coaching, intentional community building sessions, and a toolkit of practical activities, fellows emerge from the experience both equipped and connected, inspired to continue and scale their moral leadership journeys within their organizations and beyond.

Moral leadership, as explored in the fellowship, is explicitly not about moralizing but rather about how one leads, earns moral authority, and wields that influence to bring others on a journey of shared trust, truth, meaning, and hope. This skillset and orientation are particularly imperative at this moment. The pandemic has amplified and further revealed our interdependence, that we rise and fall together, along with some painful truths about society, justice, and fairness. Leaders within organizations need new frameworks, playbooks, and communities to navigate unprecedented and often grey leadership challenges. At the macro level, this is playing out through the rapid integration of virtual and hybrid work models that are disrupting business models, team structures, existing relationships, and trust. At the personal level, we’re being reminded that our colleagues aren’t human resources, but full human beings with complex hopes, fears, concerns, and interests.

The fellowship is an opportunity for likeminded but diverse emerging leaders to invest in themselves, and each other, to navigate these challenges in a more elevated way. The highly interactive curriculum is put into action through a practicum project which challenges fellows to apply moral leadership mindsets, ideas, and practices to a current critical work project. For example, one of our fellows in business resilience and safety at their organization crafted a global organization wide values-based Covid vaccine framework, another fellow is focused on establishing return to office rituals. Regardless of their practicum, all fellows are practicing their ability to instigate action, balancing levers of coercion, motivation, and inspiration and having the meaningful conversations that lead to shared truth and trust.

The fifth cohort of the fellowship will launch March 1, 2022 and will be the third that is fully virtual. To date, the fellow community includes some 200 individuals, from over 20 countries, 6 continents, and 16 organizations, including Mastercard, Levi Strauss & Co., GSK Consumer Healthcare, among others. We are growing our NXT-GEN team with the expectation of scaling the size of the fellowship 5x over the next 2-3 years, with a target of graduating 500 fellows a year.
