DI Receives Grant from Karl Schlecht Foundation

The Dialogue Institute has been awarded a €150,000 grant (euros; approximately $162,000) from the Karl Schlecht Foundation to support projects related to dialogue and global ethics through August of 2018.

The Karl Schlecht Foundation (Karl Schlecht Stiftung, KSG; note that the website is in German) is a non-profit organization in Germany with a focus on the promotion of "Good Leadership." The goal of the foundation’s work is a humanistic reorientation of leadership theory and practice in business, politics and society. To this end, KSG funds academic and cultural projects which contribute positively to the character development of young people and emerging leaders. With an annual budget of €8 million, the foundation supports more than 80 projects in Germany and beyond.

Based in Aichtal with offices in Berlin, KSG was founded in October 1998 by Putzmeister concrete pump mogul Karl Schlecht, and is a member of the Bundesverband Deutscher Stiftungen.

Dialogue Institute staff and Board members are currently developing an action plan for use of the KSG funding.
