Sanyin Siang is the Executive Director of the Fuqua/Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics at Duke University. She focuses on collaborative leadership, mentorship, and strategic partnerships. A theme through Siang's career is convening interdisciplinary, diverse and counterintuitive gatherings towards defining complex problems and implementing new approaches to solving them. Her life's work has been about driving innovation, reinvention, and transformation through breaking down silos and bridging divides. This stems from the perspective that in today's highly interdependent and complex world, the global challenges that we face can only be solved through collaboration across public, private and social sectors. Her love for mentoring has translated into coaching executives from Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America and Russia. Siang is a LinkedIn Influencer and a regular contributor to leadership to Forbes and The Huffington Post. She is co-editor of a special 2008 issue of Leader to Leader journal and co-author of a chapter in "The Handbook for Teaching Leadership". She was a former deputy editor of Professional Ethics Report by American Association for the Advancement of Science.
