About the Connect & Learn Program


C&L sessions provide a space for TD professionals to learn, share best practices and make connections with other talent development enthusiasts!

Presenters choose a talent development topic that aligns with one of the 23 capabilities of the ATD Talent Development Capability Model. After a bit of housekeeping and introductions, the presenter has 50 minutes to present  a dynamic and interactive learning presentation.

All events are scheduled for the 2nd Thursday of every month (except no event in July or December) from 12pm -1pm and are held virtually.

Who Attends the C&L Sessions?


Most of our attendees are talent development professionals who have at minimum 5+ years of experience in training and development, organizational development, or human resources.

Because of their experience and responsibilities, C&L sessions should take more of an informative, train-the-trainer format. Our goal is for attendees to practice, apply, and integrate the information into their workforce development plans and programs.
