Join The GLEN
Welcome and thank you for considering becoming a member of the Global Learning & Exchange Network or GLEN, as we call it.
The GLEN was formed to catalyze collaboration among leaders, organization and communities and to explore and contribute to the evolution of collaborative practice and collective action across all levels of human systems to help address the significant challenges of our time.
Members are committed to supporting each other as collaborative practitioners. Activities arise from members. We are purposely spending time making sure real relationships and trust develop as we grow.
The GLEN includes internal and external organization consultants, visual and virtual facilitators, HR professionals, team-development professionals, strategy consultants, community organizers, social activists, artists, scholar practitioners, and public- and private-sector leaders and managers interested in collaborative practice. It includes both experienced practitioners and individuals new to the field of collaboration.
GLEN members can initiate and join Exchanges to explore meaningful topics, join Collaboration projects to take acton on key issues, and contribute to the creation of online Learning Resources that share insights and practices more widely.

The GLEN embraces values that support collaboration.
- We care about differences and learning across boundaries.
- We care about mutual respect, openness to new ideas, staying sensitive to context, and valuing spirit, soul, mind and body.
- We intend to be exploratory, supporting inquiry, dialogue and real community.
- While being “seen” by other members is a deep value, The GLEN is not intended as a marketing platform.
The GLEN will push the edges of visual and dialogic practice, biasing toward thinking systemically while acting collaboratively. We are encouraging members to write, create media, and globally share experiences and learning, remaining sensitive to culture values.
