Peter Block's emphasis on authentic belonging and connectedness can inform developers' work in fostering leadership and organizational capacity. During the opening BoF session, facilitators will briefly review Block's framework and invite conversation on how these ideas might frame POD conference engagement. In the closing session, facilitators will prompt dialogue on the ways in which POD sessions engaged Block's principles and practices (e.g., nurturing an alternative future, convening meaningful conversations, and listening across differences) and how participants might apply these practices in their own work. Prior familiarity with Block's work is not required.
