RC Partner Cafes

All monthly discussions of research and practice will now be a part of the RC Partner Cafe series. The RC Cafe is not a typical webinar. Each month, RCRC partners come together virtually as a learning community of researchers and practitioners working on and studying organizational change. On RC Cafes, partners can present their work, lead a discussion about any topic of mutual interest or seek advice regarding a challenge they are facing with a specific initiative. Cafes are generally held on the third Thursday of each month unless otherwise noted and we rotate the time to provide convenient opportunities for partners in all time zones.

If you are an RCRC partner, view recordings of past RC Partner Cafes here.

Stay tuned for our Fall Cafe Schedule!
