We are researchers studying if better endings can lead to better beginnings at work.
When projects, teams, or roles end at work, it’s often a traumatic experience for the people involved. Taking inspiration from the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), we're exploring healthier ways to manage endings and death.

We are conducting an anthropological inquiry into how things end in organizations.
How do teams, projects, ideas, organizations cease to be?How are these endings talked about or not talked about?When endings are not discussed openly and authentically, what results?What might result from holding space for endings?Can giving old or distressed things a "good death" help us give life to new things?Can making death more explicit create an environment of constant growth and evolution?
We are currently conducting interviews with people who have worked in organizations. Have you experienced good or bad endings at work? We'd love to talk with you.
We do plan to use interview data as part of a bigger research project. It will be anonymized, and we will seek additional permission from you before we include anything you say in any public forum.
