Fishbowl Liberating Structures Learning Lab

May 23 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm

$25 – $35

Event Description:

6:15pm-6:45pm – Networking

6:45pm-8:30pm – Fishbowl Experience

Conversations have been noted within OD online communities discussing OD, the evolution of OD and where OD fits within an organizational structure. BCODN is pleased to host a fishbowl experience learning lab, where we invite the OD community to have face-to-face conversations with practicing internal and external OD professionals to come together, share and discuss first-hand what their experiences are and have been within the field of OD, the evolution of OD and where OD fits within organizational structures.

The goal is to share diverse perspectives, be curious, explore and learn from one another, while experiencing first-hand the “Fish Bowl” Liberating Structure technique. Participants will have the opportunity to follow their curiosities, ask questions and experience a Liberating Structure technique.


Objectives for this learning lab:

  1. Demonstrate and experience the Fishbowl Liberating Structure and evaluate the technique following the experience.
  2. Learn about OD through discussing individual experiences. Explore what is OD, the evolution of OD and where it fits within organizational structures, through sharing experiences of practicing OD practitioners.

  • Gervase Bushe, Professor of Leadership and Organization Development at Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University
  • Helen Jackson, Director, HR & Organizational Development, Vancouver Fraser Port Authority
