Darcy Winslow is the co-founder and President (2010-2020) of the Academy for Systems Change, an organization focused on advancing the field of awareness-based systemic change in order to achieve economic, social, and ecological well being.
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 founded the recently launched Magnolia Moonshot 2030 (MM2030), a project within the Academy, which is a new narrative for women’s leadership, creating the conditions to activate our collective power to address the greatest challenges we face today. By convening networks of women leaders who are urgently addressing the climate crisis, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, deep equity, conscious leadership and the divine feminine, MM2030 amplifies our collective ability for positive impact.
Darcy also worked at Nike, Inc. for 21 years. She led large scale systems change efforts within Nike, 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 Advisory Board for Regenerative Earth. She is an avid athlete and draws inspiration from her time in nature.
