Darcy Winslow is the President and co-founder of the Academy for Systems Change, an organization focused advancing the field of awareness-based systemic change in order to achieve economic, social, and ecological wellbeing.
The Academy designs, develops and delivers a range of programs to support, coach and build community among emerging and existing leaders who are at the pioneering edge of systems change work. Unlike conventional leadership training organizations, the Academy’s approach fosters deep understanding of the powerful connection between change within the individual and changing the systems in which they work. The Academy was in part founded to create a network of networks to contribute to the growth of the emerging field of ‘awareness based systems change’, thus accelerating our impact on the critical global ecosystems we rely on to thrive.
Darcy also worked at Nike, Inc. for 21 years and held several senior management positions, most notably starting the Sustainable Business Strategies in 1999, Global Director for Research Design and Development, General Manager/VP for Nike’s Global Women’s Footwear, Apparel and Equipment division, and Senior Advisor to the Nike Foundation.
Darcy participates as a Board Member for The Carbon Underground, The Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education, and the Institute for Sustainable Solutions.
