Jean has been mentored by Margaret Mead, been personally inspired by Helen Keller and advised Hillary Clinton. As an author, Houston has written or co-written 27 books. She has been a consultant in many areas of systemic change and especially to United Nations agencies, working with UNICEF and, since 2003, has been consultant to The United Nations Development Program training leaders in human development in the light of social change. Through her work with nations around the world, Jean Houston has developed methods to ignite cultural awareness and pride within societies, and to use these forces to help rejuvenate underachieving cultures. Always working with an optimistic eye toward what the human and society could be, Houston has pioneered the concept of approaching social development and progress the way an artist approaches a work of art. This technique, Social Artistry, represents a new model for leadership.
Jean will illumine our understanding of a “holistic politics,” with her brilliant ability to integrate the “whole person” into political and social activism.
