Dear One and All,
This note is a special invitation for you to join an Appreciative Inquiry working session on October 29th from 10am to 12pm EDT aimed at strengthening the MSR community and research for social impact.
The goal is to engage the whole MSR community to answer the question, how might we spark collaboration and ignite our collective wisdom to manifest AOM division status in ways that wildly exceed all expectations? The core themes from earlier MSR community conversations were distilled into six research projects (or 'boats') that we believe can contribute to MSR's development. The ultimate outcome of this process, beyond a successful Division application, will be a living document to help MSR continually self-reflect on the vitality of our community (voices and culture) and on the strength of our research for social impact.
Why you should join the Appreciative Inquiry Working Session on October 29th:
On behalf of the MSR Executive committee, I warmly invite you to be part of this milestone event on a journey toward a more flourishing future.
Please add the zoom link to your calendar for October 29th at 10am – 12pm EDT and confirm your participation here on AOMConnect or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The agenda is shown below.
