Welcome to FRED Leadership
FRED Leadership is a premier nonprofit organization that connects and inspires those who exemplify and cultivate ethical, inclusive and transformational leadership.
FRED is a community for developers of leaders – from corporations, universities, consultancies and non-profit organizations – who are principled, honest and compassionate, and who commit to the recognition and development of ethical leadership in themselves, their organizations and beyond.
