Dialogues on Development Management (DoDM) is India’s first conference to engage in transformative conversations about the vital concept of Development Management in the social sector. It stands as the hallmark of our mission to create sustained impact at scale. At DoDM, we don’t talk about change, we catalyse it.
DoDM is dedicated to collaborate with thought leaders and organisations, comprehend the intricacies of the sector and accelerate the global agenda of social change.
Our inaugural event, held on September 20th, 2023, marked the beginning of an exciting journey towards redefining the approach towards development management.
DoDM is a pivotal component of our mission to create a comprehensive ecosystem for Development Management. A one-stop platform that brings together organisations and stalwarts across the social sector to collaborate, converse and explore the nuances of Development Management.
A thought-provoking confluence of Samaaj, Sarkaar, and Bazaar, uniting thought leaders to explore the power of management in driving social transformation for underserved communities.
