Right now I am working with Tribal Health Directors to improve health human resource policy and practice in light of northern Saskatchewan Indigenous cultures and values. Follett's law of the situation and her concept of power with resonate with my elders' teachings and aid in Indigenous organizational practice in the context of settler colonialism. I believe I have more to learn from her and this network. Thank you to the people who started and post to this site.
Reading your statement on "What brings you to Follett," reminds me that around 1990 I raised some funds (a few people on this list made donations for the endowment) to create a Mary Parker Follett award for the Society for Professionals in Dispute Resolution (now Association of Conflict Resolution) The first person to win the award was Roberta Jameison, the Ombudsman of the province of Ontario, and a First Nation member. It would be fun to have her on this list. I've lost contact with her.
I had the privilege of presenting the award to two organizations in South Africa, plus Richard Salem, American who did work in South Africa, in 1995. The folks at the conference with tribal roots resonated with her thinking. How this quintessential Yankee woman became so wise fascinates me. Welcome!
