 With Political Leader of an Exile Government, Lobsang Sangay.

In 2011, the Dalai Lama stepped down as political leader of the Tibetan exile government. For the first time ever, the Tibetan community democratically elected a new political leader: Mr. Lobsang Sangay. He served two terms as Sikyong (President) from 2011-2021. As Sikyong, Mr. Sangay traveled the world on behalf of the exile government and the Dalai Lama. In his talk at CU, he shares these experiences, asking what makes a good leader.
