What is a Plexus Fractal?

Plexus Fractals are self-organizing groups of people who want to get together face-to-face periodically to learn about complexity and its applications, share experience and problems, and network with others with similar interests.

On a regular basis someone in the Plexus Network will ask, “Why don’t we reboot local Fractals?” In the past, Plexus Fractals were hosted in cities across the US and Canada and were a popular way for members of the Plexus community to find new professional connections and networks. Today, MeetUp, a platform for finding and building local communities, has made targeted interest or topic driven events even more popular.

We are taking advantage of this trend to experiment with a reboot of the DC Fractal, organized by Barb Siegel, Plexus Board Member and DC resident. If you are in the DC area, join us on Tuesday November 5, 2019. All, including friends and colleagues, are welcome!

If any members of the Plexus Network are interested in trying a Fractal in their city, let us know. There is no limit to the types of programs a Fractal can offer. Programs Fractals have offered in the past include: Meetings with invited guest speakers (such as researchers, authors, or practitioners), book discussions, experiential workshops, field trips to local organizations, topic-based discussions, open space conversations, and other networking opportunities.
