The International Organization Development Association (IODA) conference has been scheduled from 15th to 17th October 2021 on the theme of Breakpoints and Beyond – People-Positivity-Possibility. Information on the conference is available through the website. This theme is incredibly relevant in these times and has comprehensively captured what we do in our OD field, what we offer our client organizations and new systems that we will execute.
In recognition of the rapidly changing context for our world and for each of our members across the continents, the OD World Summit team is working tirelessly to create a hybrid conference model, a first for IODA. The hybrid approach means both participants and presenters will be able to join either online or in person.
The ODWS team has also enabled a flexible registration model where you have the option to register initially for online participation and add on physical attendance once it is clear that you are able or willing to travel. You can register here as a participant and make a proposal to present here.
Assumption University has ensured that the best arrangements will be put in place on site, bearing in mind that this could be the first time many of us consider traveling since the beginning of this pandemic.
We know that many of us are dealing with high levels of uncertainty and struggling to plan the year ahead, so we invite you to be open to the possibilities that this conference can hold for us to re-connect and to collectively process the many positive outcomes together.
