The Call of Our Time: OD Innovating for Impact

When organizations seek to strengthen return on investment (ROI) and financial health, they often look at the quality of stakeholder connections, the environments’ conditions for growth, and positive impacts on various communities. As OD partners, so do we strive to meaningfully CONNECT, continuously GROW and make significant IMPACT.  We invite OD practitioners, partners, students, academics, scholars and professionals to connect, grow and make an impact as we boost our collective readiness for an uncertain future. Our world faces great opportunities — rebuilding trust in our financial systems and global relationships, turning around inequality and poverty, caring for our environment, and elevating education and healthcare.

The OD Network Annual Conference is the premier conference for hundreds of practitioners, students, academics, scholars and professionals in the OD space. The 2017 Annual Conference will be held October 14-17, in Chicago, Illinois, USA at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel. The program theme is The Call of Our Time: OD Innovating for Impact.

The 2017 Annual Conference encourages attendees to think differently about work, not only as interventions, but as innovations that deliver impact. Come experience thought-leader insights, practitioners’ stories and hands-on action learning:

  • Hear six keynote guests in three plenary sessions will help us explore the call of our time and its influence and impact on our profession.
  • Explore over thirty 90-minute concurrent sessions that invite you to learn from peer facilitators about the ways they are using technology, innovation and collective action.
  • Contribute to a live business challenge by applying competencies described in the Global OD Practice Framework.
  • Roll up your sleeves in a deep-dive pre-conference workshop and leave with practical tools for both new and tested consulting methods.
  • Celebrate and honor exemplary OD practice during the OD Network’s annual awards ceremony.
  • Connect with colleagues in affinity groups who share your interest and purpose as an OD practitioner (LBGTQ, Men in OD, Spirit in the Workplace, Latinos in OD, Internals Community of Practice, Women in OD, ODEA and Affiliated School members).
  • Contribute to the OD Network annual meeting.
  • Network with other participants — including keynote guests — throughout the conference.
  • Visit a wide range of exhibitors in the OD Network Exhibit Hall.
  • Attend Sponsor Spotlight sessions to learn more about sponsors.

The OD Network creates a global community for exchanging best practices, opportunities to interact with thought leaders, and access to leading edge practices, tools, and technologies. The 2017 Annual Conference is your chance to be part of the future of OD and to drive the innovation that answers The Call of Our Time.
