I'm a graduate of the whole systems design masters program "Organizational Systems Renewal" (cohort 6, 1993) and have brought systems thinking to my work in government and non-profits. Loving learning, I continued my education in "transformative learning and change" and now teach systems thinking at The Evergreen State College where interdisciplinary learning is practiced.
