        Calling all talent development practitioners! ATD recently rolled out an updated capability model that illustrates what talent development practitioners need to KNOW and DO to develop themselves, others and their organizations.

        Hear from ATD's Director of Credentialing, Morgean Hirt, about how this game-changing model helps prepare TD professionals for the trends we can’t yet see and the future we cannot predict. Explore the new interactive Capability Model, which can help you harness change for your organization.

        • Understand the components of the new model - Discover the knowledge and skills that will empower the growth and development of talent development professionals

        • Apply the interactive tools to identify areas of growth for yourself or your whole team - Assess skill strengths and gaps for development 

        • Create a personalized learning plan of resources to close gaps

        Participants are encouraged to complete the Talent Development Capability Model self-assessment after this session and return for Part II to learn about the skill gaps of professionals in the region. The greater the number of self-assessment participants, the more robust the dataset can be for discussion.

        Focusing on diversity, equity, or inclusion (DEI) in an organization is essential in today’s workplace. It involves areas such as cultural competencies, emotional intelligence, and understanding and accepting differences. For many organizations, DEI can seem tough to measure, as it is typically related to intangible benefits. When aligned with company goals, DEI’s value can go beyond morale and a sense of psychological safety and can have quantifiable gains for an organization and its people. This certificate program will prepare participants with the knowledge to understand diversity and its impact on an organization’s bottom line.

         

        After completing this program, participants will have the ability to:

        1. Define diversity, equity, and inclusion and understand the differences.

        2. Identify biases, personal filters, and intersectionality.

        3. Conduct a comprehensive diversity audit and needs analysis.

        4. Recognize the six areas of cultural competency.

        5. Determine different methods to measure the impact and show the value of a diversity intervention.

        6. Align diversity interventions with organizational goals.

Whether it is rolling out a new product or initiative, collaborating on a team, or planning a vacation, a good understanding of how to deliver a project on time, within the budget, and within scope is the formula for success. Managing projects requires the ability to set clear objectives, report, project plan, work collaboratively and control project outcomes.

        • Think of a project that you have been involved with recently:
        • What role did you play?
