As part of Abroad’s CSR Initiatives, we study the wellbeing of leaders as a path to increased innovation, performance, and positive societal impact. The Leader Wellbeing Index (LWI) is a global cooperative that provides leaders, organizations, and investors the awareness and support they need to positively impact the world and feel well while they do it. The mission of the LWI is to build healthy, high-performing innovation ecosystems. We are currently enrolling partners
who can engage with LWI at different levels:

Game Changers
These are people and organizations who demonstrate extraordinary courage and compassion by prioritizing their time and energy to coordinate large-scale action around these initiatives. This can include organizing leadership wellbeing programs in your community, working to empower indigenous communities, or organizing a compassion project for your employees to rally around.

Partners
These are people and organizations who demonstrate generosity by providing the financial resources to support these initiatives. This can include sponsoring further wellbeing research, subsidizing leadership wellbeing programs, and/or being a major donor to a wisdom center or compassion project.

Ambassadors
These are people and organizations who are willing to create awareness of these initiatives by inviting your personal, professional, and social networks to learn more about these initiatives, and how to get involved.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Human beings are suffering at scale, as evidenced by the global wellbeing market being a $4.2T category growing 10% annually. Abroad’s integrated CSR strategies around research, wisdom, and compassion are designed to help address the root causes of the crises while supporting the development of a wellbeing economy that promotes human and ecological flourishing.

Leader
Wellbeing
Index

A global cooperative that provides leaders, organizations, and
investors the empirical awareness and support they need to positively impact the world and feel well while they do it. It is our hope that LWI become the NPS for leader
wellbeing.

Centers for
Traditional

Wisdom

While acknowledging the benefits of modernization,
the Centers for Traditional Wisdom will explore the possibilities of retrieving and
retaining some of the ancient knowledge and tools that may help individuals and societies navigate the complexities of the modern world.

Global
Compassion
Project

An international initiative with a mission to alleviate
suffering by amassing and regenerating love and compassion in the world. The projects provide leaders and organizations opportunities to experience the joy and contentment of
altruistic service.

As part of Abroad’s CSR efforts, we donate 3% of our sales to preserve ancient wisdom and empower indigenous communities, and work with our community to provide financial support to those who need it most.

Partners & Clients

These are some of the forward-thinking organizations we have worked with to develop their leaders and teams.
