about us

For the last 15 years, we have delivered a 9-month program to equip participants to navigate the frontiers of human and social development. The premise of the program is that as individuals, leaders, organizations and societies, and even as humanity, we are all works in progress, not finished products. To progress well we need a deep understanding of what progress is, what it is not, and how easy it is to be mistaken. To get there requires a deep caring and commitment to humanity’s future as well as one’s own.

Participants include members of the not-for-profit, corporate, government, academic and other sectors. We have over 800 alumni in Edmonton and in Calgary.

Climate change, resource depletion, human rights abuses, global inequities, population growth, violence: these types of problems are messy, interrelated, and systemic in nature – and they do not observe municipal boundaries. We need people whose thinking and caring transcend the city limits. We need people who can “see what needs to be done, and do it effectively without being told what to do”. We call this Human Venture Leadership.
