Birute Regine, EdD


Leader of our October 17, 2006 cafe, Birute Regine is an author and developmental psychologist who specializes in the dynamics and development of relationships. Between 1996 and 1998 she was a visiting scholar at the Center for Research on Women at Wellesley College in Massachusets. It was here that she developed a narrative approach to organizational change.

Her investigative work on organizations that have evolved as living organizations, is a pivotal inspiration to this series for women. She authored "Weaving Complexity & Business: Engaging the Soul at Work" and is currently publishing a new book called "Path of the Iron Butterflies: Revolutionary women transforming our world" in which she interviews leading women on their leadership approach.

In her groundbreaking book, "Weaving Complexity & Business: Engaging the Soul at Work", Birute with Roger Lewin showcase a new and powerful way of thinking about and working in the new economy, one that draws on science of complexity to prove that work is personal--and that our times demand that we be open to an organziation as a living structure--rather than as a machine with people as perscribed pieces of that machine.


Our cafe on October 17 was a great success. Twenty-nine women gathered to share practices, ideas, and experience about engaging their souls at work.

Cafes aim to convene women around important topics that matter to innovate and support a new way of working. For more information about upcoming cafes and to be a part of our new "Women's Innovation Network" please join Soul at Work.
