Organizational Ombuds 101

Ombuds is a shortened form of the name “ombudsman,” which comes from Swedish and means ”representative.” At a fundamental level, an Ombuds is one who independently assists individuals and groups in the resolution of conflicts or concerns within an organization and helps the organization make changes to prevent the issues from recurring. Ombuds work in all types of organizations, including governments, colleges and universities, corporations, non-profits, hospitals and news organizations. Come learn more about how the core principles of Ombuds practice could benefit your clients or organizations.
The program provide continuing legal education credits and is open to non-members.  (Milwaukee Bar CLE.)
