The Cultivating Change Foundation Blog is an online lifestyle publication for modern learning and development professionals.
We’re inspired by the innovators, creators, and explorers who push the agriculture industry forward. Equally we are inspired by organizations that not only believe in, but truly value the importance of diversity and inclusion.
Studio 5 is a destination for teams and organizations to come and seek guidance on how they can define and redefine what their learning and development experience looks like. We believe the learning process should not only be fun, but engaging and slightly messy.
Through features, interviews, essays, and photo stories that explore themes relevant to the global agriculture community, our goal is to encourage organizations of all sizes to challenge the norm of learning and development, to empower their people to think and feel differently, and to inspire change within their companies.
If you have an intriguing story, a fresh opinion, a controversial argument, or compelling advice to share with the learning and development community, we would love to hear from you.
