Seven Tenets of Positive Change 2020 with Diana Whitney
Diana Whitney is a leading figure in the fields of Appreciative Inquiry and Large-Scale Organization Transformation. Much has changed since the beginning of 2020. Global relations, human well-being, health care, communities, economies, social justice, and social relations, as we have known them, have all been radically disrupted. In this session, Dr. Diana Whitney will introduce Seven Tenets of Positive Change and invite us to discuss how they apply to our work with “organizations as opportunities for social justice;” how they invite us to positively transform the power of our practices; and what small experiments we might begin to create a better world for all. 
Around the world, people are asking: How do we go forward? What will be the new normal? Have we reached a global inflection point toward a safe, caring, and just world? Those in the field of OD are wondering: How must our OD practice change to contribute to a world that works for everyone? What do we know about how to create systemic transformation, in the midst of unprecedented disruption in social patterns, change and chaos?
