2015 Request for Proposals



 Welcome to the

2015 OD Network | IODA Annual Conference


2nd OD World Summit

Request for Proposals

Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2015 ODN | IODA World Summit!  The theme of the conference this year is “Our Field. Our World. Our Impact.”  The event promises to be an epic milestone for our profession. It is a global gathering that will connect communities, and leave a positive footprint on our field as we flourish together.

To achieve our goals for the World Summit, the request for 2015 proposals is critical.  The Program Committee is looking for dynamic and engaging facilitators who not only bring their skills and experiences to the conference, but bring learnings to share with participants that are experiential, relatable, and transferable. Facilitators will host sessions on topics relevant to the three main themes (Our Field. Our World. Our Impact), facilitate conversations and dialogue that deepen understanding of OD principles and practices across cultures, and engage participants with emerging perspectives in our field.

We encourage all presenters to find innovative ways of sharing their experiences, knowledge, research, and cases in a way that is culturally sensitive and acknowledges the global nature of the conference and attendees.  We are in particular seeking diverse, innovative proposals from around the world.  The committee highly recommends making these presentations as experiential and engaging as possible for the learner. Attendees consistently rate interactive sessions higher than those that are not, and the committee will be looking to select such sessions for the program.

Please refer to the link to the descriptions below to guide your content development, while considering that experiential, interactive formats will be favored above standard presentations.  We look forward to reviewing your submission!
