ISN offers annual and one-time special programs focused on leadership formation and social justice education within the context of Ignatian spirituality. These events convene the Ignatian family for collective education on emerging social justice issues, develop networks to address these issues, and initiate opportunities for young emerging leaders to reflect on the relationship between faith and justice.
