The CAUX-IofC Foundation becomes “Initiatives of Change Switzerland”

By Stephanie Buri, Director of Communications and Knowledge Management

With growing activities in Switzerland, and as part of the IofC global movement, we seized the opportunity of the global IofC brand refresh, to change our name from “the CAUX-Initiatives of Change Foundation” to “Initiatives of Change Switzerland”.



Often known as “Caux”- we’ve kept that name in our flagship event the “Caux Forum” and in our one-of-a-kind conference centre: "the Caux Palace" – conference and seminar centre.

The Foundation was founded in 1946, the same year it acquired the Caux Palace, just above Montreux. From mainly an international conference centre we’ve now developed our reach beyond Caux and are running activities in Geneva and increasingly across Switzerland. Our work, in line with the global IofC Network, is on trust building through dialogue facilitation and training in the areas of migration and youth engagement. We are also recently trialing the use of IofC’s tools in resilience building for the humanitarian sector. Finally, we are developing our programme and conference on Ethical Leadership in Business and how to develop a trust-based corporate culture.

Our refreshed logo maintains the essence of the previous one, but has a fresh look and feel to be more relevant to today’s continuously changing audience. The path represents the individual’s journey through life and the personal change process and the sphere the world and how Initiatives of Change helps its members to grow and build a better future for generations to come.
