OpenWork is part of a a consortium, or change collaborative, made up of eight passionate change advocates. The collaborative came about organically via the the result of a Neo Connect panel. The conversation which started there was too engrossing to let go, so they have continued and added voices.
The collaborative is made up of a diverse group of scholars and practitioners from different backgrounds. In that respect we are interdisciplinary in our approach(es), and in that sense we extend the innovative work ongoing at the Interdisciplinary Center for Healthy Workplaces at UC Berkeley. In the collaborative we have: an organizational psychologist, a medical school/public health professor, a public health/business school professor, an architect, a change strategist, an environmental psychologist, a design strategist, and an organizational anthropologist.
As we shape our evolving vision, members will be adding tools and resources designed to help organizations as we use the Covid-19 moment to make long-term decisions that will affect how their people work and live.
