Atlanta, Georgia, United States | September 25 - 27, 2024

Join us for the 48th Annual Robert S. Hartman Institute Conference! Our time together will be aligned under the theme of "Empowering Transformation with Axiology." The conference will take place at The Shane Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, from September 25 to 27, 2024. If you joined us for last year's 47th Annual Conference, it is in the same wonderful location.

We look forward to inviting speakers who engage in an exploration and application of how formal axiology, the study of values, can be applied to personal, organizational, and societal transformation. If you are interested in becoming a speaker, apply here.

As always, this will be a unique opportunity to connect with leading thinkers, practitioners, and enthusiasts as we delve into discussions, workshops, and presentations designed to empower and inspire you in your work with axiology. Mark your calendars!




The conference officially kicks off the night before on Wednesday, September 25th, with an informal networking event with other conference attendees. Thursday will be a packed day of presentations, speakers, and workshops, followed by a formal reception. Friday will be another day of presentations. More details will be announced in the coming months. Please check back.
