ODC Division 50th Anniversary Dialogue Series

  • 1.  ODC Division 50th Anniversary Dialogue Series

    Posted 21 days ago


    On May 13, we will host two sessions about the future of the ODC Division. Over the last six months, we have sponsored two events to mark our 50th Anniversary. As we now look to the future, we invite you to join a session to share your ideas on specific, concrete initiatives.

    REGISTER NOW for May 13

    Through the 50th Anniversary series, we have connected with more than 200 participants, generating several "big ideas" or potential initiatives for the future. We now seek your participation to further develop these specific initiatives. We need your energy and insight!

    Two options:

    Session 1:      May 13, 2021, 2:30am US Eastern/6:30am UTC Duration 90 min.*

    Session 2:      May 13, 2021, 11:30am US Eastern/ 3:30pm UTC Duration 90 min.*

                            * Other time zones are indicated in the registration link.

    The format for both sessions will consist of one hour of group-based discussion. Each participant should select up to three ideas from the list below that you would be interested in discussing with others in a group. You will be paired with others who share your interests. The total time commitment for each session is 90 minutes.

    Our ultimate goal is to establish a collaborative community space with sustained opportunities for all who have an interest in and passion for Organization Development and Change, the research and practices of healthy, vibrant, and human organizations and communities. Your work in this session will help us to identify the most important ideas to prioritize as we build the future.

    Please come! Your contributions will create the foundation for the Division to thrive as a hub for ODC-related research and practice activities. If you cannot attend, please reply to let us know where you think we should focus our efforts.

    Facilitators wanted!

    We hope to see you on May 13!
