Who we are in professional organisations is directly influenced by our personal and professional identities. Organisational identities are shaped by our biographies and geographies, which influence  our values, beliefs and aspirations, and our motivation and commitment to organisational development. In this panel session, members of the HELTASA executive committee reflect critically on the outcomes of a participatory learning and action process in which we explored our constructions of our individual, relational, professional and organisational selves. We share insights on how our multiple identities influence our organisational work and how we exercise agency in fulfilling our commitments in higher education.
