The MSOD community has been abuzz with Guild community action for the past two years. Have YOU been part of these communities of practice?? Come learn and share with others about those experiences! Not part of the community yet?  Engage with us in these vibrant and meaningful interactions. You'll have an experience that will challenge your thinking, stir you to laughter, maybe even tears, and definitely offer deep connections in meaningful communities of practice. The guilds currently provide: 1. OD support in your industry, 2. Diversity, Equity & Inclusion capacity building, and 3. development of your practitioner skills as an External Practitioner or in Change Management. You can be a part of adding to the guild eco-system as we'll also consider new offerings for 2022 and beyond!
