As a founding member of the CMM Institute, I am grateful that we have a place to convene as a community and support shared commitments to, in every moment, make better social worlds. I live in the Philadelphia area and have been working as a consultant to organizations for over 30 years. I met CMM when I Barnett Pearce during my doctoral studies at Fielding Graduate University in 1998. My early conversations with Barnett turned my perspective in action. CMM was central to my research doing a collaborative inquiry with groups engaging social identities that had a history of conflict and I continue to use CMM in my consulting practice, in my teaching, in my writing and in my everyday relating. I look forward to learning with you.
