    CSC Global Alumni, on behalf of the thousands of CSC alumni joins the rest of the world in expressing heartfelt sorrow for the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

    Her Majesty died peacefully at Balmoral in Scotland.

    The Queen leaves a legacy of devotion to the citizens of The Commonwealth, commitment to duty and stability in times of turbulence.

    She was the longest reigning monarch in the history of the United Kingdom.

    Her Majesty The Queen is in the thoughts and prayers of the thousands of CSC alumni from throughout the world.

    Buckingham Palace has issued a short statement saying that “following further evaluation this morning, the Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision.”

    The Queen is said to remain comfortable and at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

    Members and Fellows of CSC Global Alumni send our best wishes to Her Majesty and the rest of the Royal Family.

    We are enormously privileged to announce that one of the Commonwealth's leading Executive Leadership Coaches, Dr Helena Dolny from South Africa, will host two sessions for CSC alumni on leading with resilience through a time of collective grief.

    COVID19 is not yet predictable.  The medical profession is still learning.  The strain mutations are a cause for anxiety.  The first vaccines may not be effective against the new strains.

    • What does all of this mean for us in our world of work?
    • What is our shared experience? What has provoked creativity? What has caused grief?
    • What does it mean to be a leader and to lead during times of collective grief?

    Join Dr Helena Dolny from Love, Legacy, Dignity, for this workshop, covering two key topic areas:

    1. Adversity in a Pandemic

    Acknowledges our ongoing context – our ‘normal’ life crises that are exacerbated by the pandemic.

    Resilience by Design: Reviews the essential ingredients of maintaining physical and emotional well-being and provides tools to plan and support the self-monitoring of your personal well-being.

    Being able to lead and collaborate with others requires that we ourselves begin from a place of strength

    2. Grief – no design

    Reviews how COVID19 has brought more than loss of life, grief is amplified and expanded through not only the loss of loved ones, but also loss of opportunities, loss of dreams, loss of freedom of movement, loss of physical connectivity.

    We share learnings and tools from grief research and counselling that we can use to support ourselves and others – especially at this time when social distancing has deprived many of the comfort of exchanging last words in person or the undertaking of important rituals.  

    Select from one of the following sessions based on your time zone preference:

    20 July 2021, 16h00 - 18h00 UTC

    21 July 2021, 07h00 – 09h00 UTC

    Please note: The session provides a unique opportunity to engage and learn from other CSC alumni from across the Commonwealth so please come prepared to share your own learnings from recent times, in particular what has helped and what has hindered you as a leader.

    This is a statement from CSC Global Alumni:

    "As the COVID situation deteriorates in many parts of the world, CSC Alumni stand with our colleagues, friends and all those impacted.   

    "Amid a huge surge in the number of reported cases in India alone, resources are strained and there is great sadness. 

    "CSC Global Alumni shares the grief of those who have been affected and those who have lost loved ones. 

    "May those who are leading and involved in the fight against the pandemic find strength to remain forward looking and to inspire hope.  

    "We are with you.

    "CSC Global Alumni."

    It is with profound sadness the we acknowledge the passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

    His life of service has had an enormous impact on countless lives throughout the commonwealth and in deed around the world.

    As Commonwealth Studies Conference Alumni, we know only too well the positive impact that The Duke of Edinburgh’s vision  has brought.  In our instance, his positive impact is multiplied many times over through the work of alumni as leaders in their vocations and communities.

    We give thanks for his life and join with all across the commonwealth to express our condolences and sympathy to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and all members of the Royal Family.
