WHY COME TO CHILE FOR THIS YEAR’S CONFERENCE?
IODA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE is an annual gathering of Organizational Development professionals which offers participants the opportunity to become involved in multi-cultural interactions, in order to explore new thinking, to engage with different communities and to enjoy new learning opportunities.
This year’s event “Inclusion & Diversity: A Journey towards building Trust” will include international keynote speakers, experts in the field of inclusion, diversity and trust, facilitators on agile tools and collective intelligence activities.
This is a possibility for professionals who want to impact organizational cultures and their practices to expand their horizons beyond local realities by taking their skillset to another level.
OUR CONFERENCE PURPOSE
We believe that change inevitably goes through the professionals who unleash their potential which contribute to the development of communities and organizations and finally cultures in their entirety.
Our purpose for this conference is to inspire, develop and encourage all participants to believe that inclusion, acceptance of diversity and trust can be part of any organization anywhere in the world.
Together during this conference we will create an environment of shared learning, exploration, connection and awareness to equip all the professionals present to become catalysts for the changes that are necessary in our organizations.

Professionals are invited from all areas of Organizational Development: Consulting, Capacity Building, Human Resources, Change Management, Community Building and similar disciplines.
We invite all those who are passionate about connecting with a Global Community to share knowledge and enhance better practices in an environment of equality and respect for all cultures.
If you want a Global Perspective on OD and an opportunity to share ideas and co-create with others, this conference is for you.
DAY 1 - INCLUSION
FEELING WELCOME & BECOMING PART OF A BIGGER WHOLE
Nov. 7th, 2019
Welcome to our first day and our topic Inclusion. We will explore the topic through keynote speakers’ presentations, experts in the area of inclusion, discussion groups, and group intelligence methodology. We hope that participants will come away with clear ideas about how we can value everyone, give equal access and opportunity to everyone, and remove discrimination and other barriers to include everyone.
Inclusion is the attitude, tendency or policy of integrating all people in society, with the aim that they can participate and contribute to it and benefit in this process. Today is the day that we have the opportunity to share our dreams for a more inclusive society and begin to encourage each of us to take the steps necessary to generate more inclusive communities throughout our world.
DAY 2 – DIVERSITY
COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE COMES IN ALL SHAPES AND FORMS
Nov. 8th, 2019
The second day of our conference aims at touching a nerve with our openness and acceptance of the different. Diversity has become the rule not the exception when it comes to organizing teams, re designing structures and collaborating from a divergent point into a convergent one based on collective intelligence practices.
In Today’s Chile as well as in several countries in the world, people are standing on opposite trenches on political views, educational development, race inclusion and organizational practices which represent the culture of a company. This day will challenge us to go beyond our differences and work our way towards building a solid base for trust.
DAY 3 - TRUST: THE BASIS FOR ANY INCLUSION AND ACCEPTANCE OF DIVERSITY
Nov. 9th, 2019
Trust is one of the factors that determines the performance of people in organizations. A real indicator of leadership is the presence of trust since it suggests a suspension, at least temporarily, of uncertainty regarding the actions of others. When someone trusts another, he believes that he can predict his actions and behavior. In the field of social sciences, trust is very important for those who study and manage organizations. To date, multiple perspectives are offered to improve our understanding of the nature of trust relationships; the debate is intense and refers to the importance of trust as the cause, effect or interaction.
Our aim for today is to be able to explore together our opportunities and capacities to develop and expand our ability to generate relationships of trust in an era challenged by issues of inclusion and diversity.
