Isabel Rimanoczy, Ed.D. has made it her life purpose to promote change accelerators. Aware of the complex challenges our planet (and us in it) are facing, she works alongside those who can make an impact on a greater scale. She developed the Sustainability Mindset, a concept she researched by studying business leaders who championed corporate initiatives with a positive impact on the environment and the community. What inspired these leaders to act in a business-as-unusual way? She created LEAP! an international cohort of 83 academics from 72 universities on five continents promoting a holistic sustainability mindset with their students. The professors foster a new paradigm, social action and consciousness. LEAP was officially designated the PRME Working Group on Sustainability Mindset in June 2015 at the Global Forum of UN PRME in New York, and the members are researching the Sustainability Mindset in their context and culture, writing papers, and presenting at conferences. She facilitates a Faculty Training on the Sustainability Mindset for this network. Isabel is the Global Academic Ambassador for AIM2Flourish, the international initiative to promote businesses as agents of world benefit. A2F is supported by the United Nations PRME and Global Compact. The Prizes are an international showcase of entrepreneurial innovation working towards what needs to be our global agenda: the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. She is a Strategic Sustainability Adviser for One Planet Education Networks (OPEN), a Fellow of the Schumacher Institute, UK, and a Senior Partner with Leadership in Motion LLC (LIM). She has worked in North and Latin America, Europe, Asia and Middle East.
