HISTORY: Silicon Valley Organizational Development Network is an independent professional association started in 1989 as the South Bay OD Network (SBODN) to bring like-minded OD practitioners from Silicon Valley together to learn from/with each other.  In 2016 we embarked on a bold re-visioning of the organization’s purpose and way of operating.  As a result, we’ve added an Advisory council and over a dozen new core team members to transform the organization.

Jeff Richardson – SVODN Director

“I joined SVODN after moving to Silicon Valley in 2001.  I loved the people and the learning opportunities, so continued to plug in when ever possible.  I joined the support team in 2009 as webinar coordinator before being asked to take over in 2011, I’m honored to continue the tradition by expanding the vision to be a self-organizing learning organization.”
