AKRI AT 50

RECENT TRANSFORMATIONS IN GOVERNANCE AND LEADERSHIP
A COLLABORATIVE DISCUSSION

Friday 4:15-6:30

PART ONE

THE A K RICE INSTITUTE, PHASE III

In collaboration with the AKRI Presidents’ Group and Affiliates Representatives, members of the Affiliate Relations Committee will present its work to bring to fruition fully functional relationships between AKRI and the Affiliates and to bring affiliate representation to the AKRI Board over the past 4 years. Aspects of AKRI’s organizational history will provide context for this project. Significant system dynamics encountered throughout the process will be a prominent focus. Abundant time will be reserved for questions and open discussion.

PART TWO

FOSTERING SUCCESSFUL LEADERSHIP TRANSITIONS WITHIN AKRI AFFILIATE CENTERS

This panel of past and current AKRI Affiliate presidents will come together to explore our collective past and visions for the future, both as individual Centers and as AKRI Affiliates. With a particular focus on understanding the components of successful leadership transitions, we will enlist group relations theories and audience engagement so as to mine the collective AKRI experienceand the wisdom therein. 

 

Our ultimate goal is collaborative learning. Panel participants (leadership selected by each of the Centers) will work before the Dialogues event to share their experiences with one another and agree on the themes to be shared during the Dialogues. During the event, in addition to sharing insights, there will be time for dialogue and discussion with the audience, including invitation for members and leaders from all centers who may want to contribute to the discussion.
