Join us for RSD8,
the eighth annual symposium of
Relating Systems Thinking and Design(RSD)

Held for the First time in the united states

oCTOBER 17–19

Chicago, il



There is an emerging concern to address the pragmatics of large-scale social system change across all cotexts. Organizations can no longer do it alone if they want to achieve scaled and sustainable impact. Successful system change models are still emerging across different sectors, and simultaneously their results are challenged by massive global trends.

Achieving systems-level transformation requires activating, cultivating, and galvanizing networks that support new collaborative activities, processes, and mindsets.

At RSD8, we'll spend three days exploring real-world contexts where organizational behavior, entrepreneurship, policymaking, and design are already colliding. Together we will learn about new tools and methodologies to evolve our individual and collective points of view about leadership and the transformative practices—and challenges—of large-scale collaboration.

If you can’t attend all three days, tickets are available for just Day Two (Friday, October 18), where you can take in keynote speakers, participate in the Charles Owen Tribute and Reception, and visit the systems maps and prototypes in the Community Gallery.
