Our last in-person Summit was held in February 2020, just before the global pandemic turned the world upside-down. Flash forward to today and you know a lot has changed, not only in the workplace but in every aspect of life. When we started planning our return to meeting face-to-face, we knew it needed to look different and accommodate some of these changes.  It was time for a paradigm shift.

This year, OWS will be a completely new experience. It will take place between three of our corporate member partners’ nearby locations in downtown Chicago on May 16-17.  It will be a smaller, more intimate gathering and be our first Summit held in a "city" setting.  It is our goal to bring our members back together with ease, both economically and practically.  We're also planning some fun stuff, unlike anything we've done before. One thing that won't change is that the content will be top-notch and the networking will be plentiful and focused. Sessions will align to  IAOP's Centers, including:

  • Collaborative Supplier Governance
  • Digital Technologies
  • Future of Work
  • Social Impact
