Unity, not uniformity, must be our aim. - MPF
This is the last post in the series by Dr. Carolan McLarney, Dalhousie University, Halifax Canada:
"As we prepare to welcome a New Year, the last word belongs to a woman who passionately believed in the reality of integrating the diversity of cultures for the greater good. Mary Parker Follett valued differences, maintaining that together we gain strength and renewal, as individuals, as groups, as a society.
To complete our series on Mary Parker Follett, I am joined by Annie…Continue

This is a quote from The New State (1918) by Mary Parker Follett. Quite interestingly, it was picked up by a contemporary Muslim poet and used in the work that is now regarded by many to be the greatest masterpiece of modern…Continue
I used to chat a lot with Albie. I've been in this network a long time. She suggested I run this by the group. I recently read the forum posting that said how eerie it was to see MPF's picture come up with only that one of Bernard Bosanquet. I may be quiet but I don't give up on my interest in Mary Parker Follett. Wouldn't it be great seeing that photo if it was on U.S. currency?

Last summer's stunning protest by thousands of employees at the Market Basket food stores in Massachusetts , New Hampshire and other states was both a major labor action success and an exhibition of innovative worker management cooperation in the face of extraordinary opposition from the Board of Directors. The saga was played out largely in the media and in public demonstrations, including a protest gathering of 6,000 employees one day near…Continue

I believe that Mary Parker Follet has brought to humanity a universal truth expressed in actions of the words given.
As humanity grows in its self-understanding, its ability to move forward in life's journey; will evolve with the purpose for the betterment of the whole.
This will lead our human culture, to be more inclusive, to be increasing transparent, and communication systems break down the everyday dualities that come about from assumptions not accurate…Continue
I just wanted to invite you to take a look at a book that I am publishing this fall on MPF and Ella Lyman Cabot with Rowman and Littlefield. Thanks! All the best,
What this web site needs is an introduction to MPF and her work as a fixed link page, linked prominently on the home page. "New to MPF ? Go here >>"
I find myself writing my own introductions in each new connection I make to a new person who ought to be interested in her, rather than simply providing people with the MPF Ning link.
Could be a wiki page ? Only needs to be "a page" not a full biography / bibliography, with links to other sources. Does one of us already have…Continue
A while ago, I wrote a blog post on my website, inspired by a MPF quote that Albie had posted here...
Recently, as I was editing the post a bit for the purpose of greater clarity, I realized that some of what I'd written may be of interest to some folks here.
Here are a few paragraphs from the opening:
One of things that is most central to me about the practice of DF, is something I’ve called the "principled refusal to 'manage' convergence". As I see it,…Continue
All, I am casting about for sources relative to videos that can be used as educational resources covering integrative mediation. Though most application of restorative justice seem to have a strong religious basis, it seems that there is a opportunity for application of MPF's integrative mediation/problem solving.
