FINT Goes To Charleston

FINT is celebrating

the 11th FINT Workshop on

‘Trust Within and Between Organizations’ in March, 2022.

In 2001, the first workshop was organized in Amsterdam by our founding member Katinka Bijlsma and, ever since, trust research and the workshop have been growing strongly. To celebrate this great research output of the trust community and to feature more of those exciting discussions on where trust is heading, we now organize this 11th workshop in Charleston, South Carolina. Surely, trust as a topic could not be more relevant in times when global leadership and many organizations face trust repair and distrust issues in abundance. This creates a window of opportunity where trust research can bridge the practice gap we so often face as academics.
