to find vocabulary you need,  you can use DAML.org ontology library http://www.daml.org/ontologies/
just try to searche Classes by Name http://www.daml.org/servlet/ClassQuery 

and see which ontologies describe classes you need (just simple search not semantic :) )
It is very unclear in which context you would like to describe orgs, persons,. Ontologies or  schemas might be very different depending of your application
Description of Organization for logistic or bank applications would be very different from Partner for innovation application

Some vocabularies
www.ittalks.org  has DAML ontology 
Cyc ontology provides a very detailed classification of some classes
http://opencyc.sourceforge.net
http://opencyc.sourceforge.net/daml/cyc.daml


You can visit that site and try to create your user profile. You;ll se
more oriented for universities and scientific collaboration
also Semantic Web Research Community ontology
http://www.semanticweb.org/ontologies/swrc-onto-2000-09-10.daml
http://www.daml-atlas.org/ontologies/atlas-cmu.daml
Also I have done some work

  Greetings,

  I'm fairly new to this group so this may have been covered before.

  Does anyone know if there are any "standard" RDF vocabularies for describing users/people/organizations?

  Regards,
