Effective July 1, 2018, the Society for Organizational Learning North America will join forces with and formally transition into the Systems Leadership Institute.

This change represents a next step in an ongoing journey of evolution going back several decades, to when SoL was founded in 1997, which in turn built on the prior work of the MIT Center for Organizational Learning, started in 1990. In the short term, the Systems Leadership Institute will continue to offer SoL programs like The Foundations for Leadership and Executive Champions Workshop, which continue to generate value and build community among engaged practitioners.  It will also give time to explore ways that the considerable momentum that has been built in recent years by the Systems Leadership Institute, especially in primary and secondary education, can catalyze a new chapter in our core exploration of deep change in systems that shape modern society. The Systems Leadership Institute, started by founding SoL members Robert Hanig and Peter Senge and Mette Boell from MITs J-WEL (World Education Lab) initiative, aims to support developing leaders who foster collaboration for systemic change.  It now also involves former SoL NA Council member, Julia Ross.

As we undertake this transition over the next few months, we will continue to provide periodic updates on our website. We look forward to moving through this evolution with you and are eager to help steward this rich and vibrant community.
