Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) Virtual Roundtable

Presented by the Center for Positive Organizations

Free, registration required to obtain login information

This event is intended for scholars active in POS research

Join us for a virtual get together of new and veteran Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) researchers to share and advance empirical and theoretical research.

Spanning two hours, this virtual event will allow community members to connect, learn, discuss, reflect, and share research in the field of POS. Our goal is for attendees to leave with a dose of positive research energy, inspiration, and connectedness that will help them as they generate research that inspires and enables scholars, leaders, and workers to build a better world through the science and practice of thriving organizations. We look forward to hearing about the development of these ideas at our in-person research conference in June 2022.
