    We are very excited to announce the launch of a global, accessible, and fully-virtual initiative building community of inquiry at the intersection of (dis)abilities and organizing. Our Spring Institute is multi-disciplinary and multi-method. 

    We use an allyship model that connects international faculty and participants (PhD students, post-doctoral students, and early career researchers interested in better understanding abilities in organizational settings).

    Five consecutive days of four-hour zoom programming (1pm – 5pm GMT, 1st to 5th March 2021):

    • 60-minute rolling keynote session with 3-4 speakers
    • 30-minute small group engagement with one of the speakers
    • 30-minute networking break
    • 90-minute Method Masterclass with hands-on application

    There will be an additional mandatory 90-minute onboarding session at 1pm GMT on 15th February and a 90-minute  offboarding session at 1pm GMT on 15th March 2021.

    All materials will be available online, free of charge.
