Special Guest Speaker Glenda Eoyang
We are very pleased and excited to be hosting Glenda Eoyang, PhD, Founding Executive Director Human Systems Dynamics Institute as the guest presenter at our AGM. In this session, Glenda will share how her change-maker’s journey has prepared her and her community for the Age of Uncertainty.

She is a pioneer in the applications of complexity science to human systems, and she founded the field of human systems dynamics (HSD) in 2001. Through Human Systems Dynamics Institute, she leads a global network of over 800 scholar-practitioners. They apply HSD to wicked problems ranging from early childhood education to violent extremism, public health, and corporate futuring and strategy.

Blog: Effective Feedback by Melissa Breker
Giving and receiving feedback can be a tricky thing. Done well, effective feedback can share insights to improve performance, challenge perceptions, and support new insight and growth. Done poorly, it feels terrible. Are you curious about other change practitioner's thoughts on giving and receiving feedback? If so, check out Melissa Breker's blog post and read about what we learned during a previous Conversation with Change Practitioners session.
