    Dear Colleagues,

    On Thursday May 13th, the Organization Development and Change Division will host two sessions exploring the future of organization development and change management at a critical juncture in our discipline.

    Over the last six months, ODC has facilitated two events to mark our 50th Anniversary. As we look to the future, we see collaborative, cross-disciplinary synergies to be of the utmost significance in creating healthy, vibrant, and humane organizations.

    In this aim, we invite you to join a collective ideation session that can position our community at large to have an actionable impact on what lies ahead from a standpoint of both, organization development and change management research and practice.

    Through the 50th Anniversary Dialogue Series, we have connected with more than 200 participants, generating several "big ideas" and initiatives to further the scholarship and practice of organization development and change.  We now seek your cross-disciplinary participation to strategize around specific, actionable steps to ensure that we are making an impact. We need your energy and insight!
