Event Description

Your invitation to a co-inquiry

The newly established UK Chapter of the Humanistic Management Network is partnering with the Association of Management Education and Development (AMED) to produce a special Winter 2018 issue of AMED’s on-line journal e-Organisations and People (eO&P).  This is a really exciting opportunity to develop our thinking around humanistic management and how to create momentum towards embedding humanistic principles in all aspects of management, in the context of alternative ways of organising. We would like to encourage great writing at all levels; exemplars/small case studies about humanistic management in practice, thought pieces about strategies and challenges.

Our pre-publication Gathering, Saturday 28 April

We want to develop this special edition as much as possible through a process of co-production.  The first step is this Awayday for anyone who might be interested in contributing through conversation and/or writing. You don’t have to think of yourself as a writer, or even to have a clear idea for an article, because we’re also keen to encourage people to act as open peer reviewers or as critical friends, and we need to identify a small editorial group too. So there are lots of ways to get involved!

Our venue is a lovely, eco-friendly venue called Roots and Shoots - a great exemplar itself of humanistic management in practice.

Access issues

If you would like to come but are unable to manage stairs, please let us know as soon as possible, and we’ll do our best to find an alternative venue.

RSVP by 23 April (earlier if possible)

We can accommodate 15 people comfortably, and we expect interest to be high.  So it’s a good idea to book early. Please let us know by return of your interest in principle in coming, whether your main interest is in writing or in joining in with the conversations as a critical friend.  We’ll be posting more advance details in due course.

How to reserve your place

Cost: £30 payable in advance by Paypal, BACS or cheque here. via the AMED web page.  This includes lunch and light refreshments.

If you’d like to find out more before booking your place, please feel free to contact Christina Schwabenland @, or me, Bob MacKenzie @
