Diving Deep: 50 Years of Ombuds Exploration

November 5-8, 2023

In 1973, at the dawn of North American ombuds work, three practitioners decided to get together at Asilomar, go scuba diving, and sort through what it meant to be in this field. While exploring the ocean, they also dove into their practices, questioned the essence of ombuds work, and learned from each other. Today, we follow in their footsteps and take on the same considerations.

Join us for this momentous 50th anniversary gathering as we celebrate and build upon the rich history of Cal Caucus and the Ombuds profession, delve into the depths of effective ombuds work, explore how ombuds contribute to healthy and diverse organizational ecosystems, and support each other both personally and professionally.
