Charles Vogl

Charles Vogl Charles Vogl is an award winning writer, speaker and executive adviser. He works with leaders in tech, finance, media, government, and social good organizations to make the world safer and more just. He draws from the realm of spiritual traditions to understand how individuals build loyalty, strengthen identity, and live out shared values. These principles apply to both secular and spiritual leadership. Charles got his introduction in community building as a twenty-four-year-old full-time volunteer with a radical homeless shelter in Santa Ana, California. There he was stunned by the compassion and commitment of activists doing thankless and nauseating work in the face of seemingly overwhelming need. All could only continue by serving in community. He went on to work on rural health care access and human rights as a US Peace Corps volunteer in Zambia, where he was mostly exhausted, ineffective, and overwhelmed trying to make a difference. It was only later as a struggling documentary filmmaker in New York that new mentors taught him the importance and philosophy of building community for change. For the first time, his work and team achieved international success. His PBS documentary work touched on subjects from genocide education, school reform and civil rights advocacy. The training was critically important when he volunteered as a New York restaurant labor organizer after experiencing worker abuse himself. He went on to study leaders in political and social movements and spiritual traditions at Yale University. He guest lectures at the Yale Leadership Institute and Yale School of Management. He earned a Master of Divinity from Yale University where he studied religion, philosophy, and business as a Jesse Ball DuPont Foundation Scholar.
