Margaret Wheatley featured at CAEA Conference


Margaret Wheatley

Center to Advance Education for Adults (CAEA) hosted more than 100 people at the DePaul Center on the Loop campus from business, community and higher education organizations at their 2nd annual conference on “Thriving in Transition: Recharging-Reinventing-Reconnecting.” International change leader Margaret Wheatley gave the keynote address and facilitated an afternoon workshop, “We’re All in the Same Boat”.

The conference was designed to support the increasing number of people who were experiencing significant transitions in their lives, largely due to the economic downturn. The conference’s morning sessions included a panel of people sharing stories of how they are thriving in transition, followed by a number of workshops to help participants rediscover their capacities to flourish in times of change and uncertainty. SNL sponsored students, alumni and community members who were unable to afford the conference fee and a WebEx connection for participants not in the Chicago-land area.

The conference was made possible in part by donations from the Mason Parson Family Foundation, Bertram Scott and Elizabeth Fender. The morning panel and Wheatley keynote are available for download on iTunesU.  Instructions are available at
