Ateneo CORD holds Diplomate Graduation

The Ateneo Center for Organization Research and Development (Ateneo CORD) held graduation ceremonies last March 22, 2019 for 23 diplomates in Organization Development and 77 diplomates in Strategic Human Resource Management.

The diplomates came from a variety of industries and regions in the Philippines with the largest number coming from the Department of Health. Speaking on behalf of the graduates Dr. Hiro Masuda, Director of Career Executive Service Board, reminisced about his experience, “The atmosphere here at the campus and the warm, professional and learner-centered approach was very effective. The lessons were challenging but created many AHA moments for us.  One of my favorite realizations is the use of self and being mindful that whatever I do is an intervention.”

According to Dr. Regina Hechanova, Ateneo CORD Executive Director, this was the biggest number of diploma graduates for Ateneo CORD and is a fitting way to celebrate CORDs 45th anniversary.  She shared plans for CORD to continue to introduce new programs including online courses and webinars. As part of its outreach, CORD will be providing scholarships for a basic HR program for small business and NGOs. It also partnering with LGUs in helping preparing graduates of community-based drug recovery programs to seek employment.
