Relational Coordination Collaborative

RC Cafes & Other Events

The RCC is an open inclusive global community of researchers and change agents working across multiple sectors to develop, test, and implement relational theories of coordination, leadership and change.  We bring the community together - virtually and physically - throughout the year.  

We offer monthly RC Cafes for members and their guests throughout the academic year.  We offer an informal Give & Get space facilitated by advanced members of the community - stay posted for this brand new feature!  Each August we organize symposia, workshops and social gatherings at the Academy of Management Annual Meetings - including this year in Chicago and next year in Copenhagen. 

And the highlight of the year for the community is the Annual RCC Roundtable hosted by colleagues in a different city each Fall.  Stay posted for the dates and locations for 2024 and 2025!  

At these events, RCC members share their work, renew longtime relationships and build new ones, learn about cutting edge research and practice, facilitate discussions, and receive feedback on their work.  We look forward to seeing you there!
