Join us on Saturday January 27th for the first edition of World Café, a new IODA initiative led by the Strategic Project Committee for current members only, which hopes to collectively devise and yield creative approaches from our rich member base to contribute in improving OD practices and regional work environments. 

IODA constantly strives to encourage the development of students, professionals and other persons interested in organization development and related interdisciplinary fields. We hope this new World Café series will continue to educate OD professionals through international OD practices and encourage converse exchanges that enhance and edify the advancement of human beings in all parts of the world. All materials created in the series will be shared in IODA’s digital library for members to use. 

The 2024 World Café series will encompass Dr. Bill Gellerman’s professional development guidelines for OD Code of Ethics. At its core, we will share with our members the three tenets of the framework: 1) To increase professional and ethical consciousness among OD Professionals and their sense of ethical responsibilities, 2) To guide OD Professional in making more informed ethical choices, 3) To help the OD Profession itself function at the fullness of its potential.

Below is the schedule for the World Café series, related topics and values associated with Gellerman’s Code of Ethics.
