We, those most affected by inequity, now in unison move beyond dialogue and into the action of institutionalizing equity. But how are we doing it? While we examine the fundamental nature of work, we purposefully focus our attention on new practices, policies, procedures that encourage equity and eliminate the opportunity for biases.
Join us as best practices are shared and witness the creation of new systems that truly represent our thirst for humanity in all we do. In our time together, we employ a listening circle format to invite the collective wisdom in the room as we make tangible our intentions.
A. Recognize one's ability to accept others' lived experience as valid epistemology through story uninterrupted;
B. Recognize the connections between individual imagination and collective future; and
C. Provide necessary practice in the quest of institutionalizing equitable practices.

This PNODN Community Gathering will be conducted live via Zoom. The zoom meeting details will be sent out prior to the training.
At our core, PNODN is a community. We are brought together by our shared passion for helping people thrive and organizations achieve more by unleashing the human potential within them.
Whether you think of yourself as an OD person or not, if you share this passion, we think you’ll love connecting with the amazing people in this community.
Once each month we dedicate this gathering to the purpose of building community, helping you make connections that add value to your life in friendship, support and business collaboration.
This is not your typical networking event where you share your business cards and well-worn elevator pitch.
This is about making authentic connections with people in our local community with whom you share this passion for people and fascination with the human dynamics of organizations.
Each time we gather we’ll offer topics in line with our quarterly theme and guidance to make conversation easy. We’ll often use breakouts to give you a chance to talk with each other in small groups. And you’ll have the freedom to take the discussion in any direction that works for you and those gathered with you.
We will share and stick to a set of guidelines that support our shared commitment of creating a safe environment in which everyone is valued and respected. Nothing will ever be forced – you can abstain at any time.
The gathering is free of charge and everyone is welcome.
