Immediate Past Chair – Ed Gurowitz, PhD
Ed Gurowitz is a Psychologist by training – whose career began in brain research, and segued to clinical psychology (psychotherapy) and then to organizational psychology. He began consulting to organizations in 1980, spent 10 years as an est/Landmark Forum trainer from 1981 to 1991 and then resumed practice as a consultant, trainer and coach, which continues to this day. His current work centers on changing the global game in the direction of inclusionary leadership through gender partnership, environmental sustainability, and the shift from pure profit to “for benefit” as the guiding principle of business. Ed came to MKP late in his life’s journey at the behest of his business partner, Ray Arata. In MKP, he discovered the possibility of mature masculinity and the magic that is there when men sit in circle.
