The 5th International Conference on Integrating Spirituality and Organizational Leadership is being organized during September 10-15, 2015 at Fullerton Hall, The Art Institute of Chicago to deliberate and discuss the subject ‘Spirituality for Global Economic Development’.

ISOL Foundation has adopted this key theme as its driving force and is focused on spreading this message through a series of international conferences in India and now in Chicago. The Chicago conference is happening in the SAME HALL (now known as Fullerton Hall), SAME VENUE (The Art Institute of Chicago) and SAME ETHOS (Interfaith Perspective).
