The Innovative Leadership (iLead) Series (formerly known as the Dean’s Innovative Leader Series or DILS) at MIT celebrates innovative individuals who make a difference in the world. These leaders operate at the leading edge and transform today’s organizations and communities by challenging common assumptions, and creating new structures, new business models, and new modes of organizing at all levels of the traditional structure.  The MIT Leadership Center, in partnership with MIT Sloan School of Management, invite distinctive individuals to participate in The iLead Series who embody these qualities and who, in their actions, exhibit the best aspects of what it means to be a principled, innovative leader.
