What we do together is often greater than what we can do alone. Indeed, it is a core element of our work in Organization Development that we are centered in the places where people and systems come together to effect change. PNODN is no different.
We are honored and excited to partner with organizations in the PNW and beyond who are making learning, systems change, and people the center of their missions. These organizations are doing good work, adding to the collective good of our world and their work aligns with and elevates the field of OD. We are actively engaged in growing these partnerships and dreaming big about what we might achieve in collaboration with so many smart, talented, and caring people.
