President’s Message: Voicing Our Values



Over the last few weeks, we have witnessed brutality, violence, and social unrest that bring to the forefront the many ways in which societies, governments, and organizations create, maintain, and reinforce social inequality on a global level. We condemn racism and the abuse of power. These events motivate us to reaffirm and remind us of the role we play as members of this community.


from AOM President Jacqueline Coyle-Shapiro.





Fast Company:
