Learning Leaders SIG April 28
When developing content there are many factors to consider. Diversity, inclusion and accessibility are three key components to consider. But what does this look like? Does our presentation mirror the workforce and the culture in our organization? Are we creating activities that include all our employees regardless of their impairment?
In this session we will discover and discuss ways to have diverse and inclusive training materials. Along with an environment where everyone feels welcome, acknowledged and represented. Convener: Leah Cridlin
Date, time: April 28, 2021, 7:30 - 9:00 AM

GCATD Achieves 100% CARE!
Great news! GCATD achieved 100% CARE. Achieving CARE is the result of hard work put in by our Chapter volunteers. This recognition means our chapter met all required elements of CARE in 2020. Recently ATD honored us with a recognition letter from ATD President & CEO, Tony Bingham and a 100% CARE logo to share on our website.
GCATD Response to COVID-19
GCATD continues to monitor the latest information on the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, including reports and travel advisories from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other global public health authorities, and state and local authorities.
In an abundance of caution we’ve decided to hold all events virtually until further notice. This includes all SIG/GIG meetings and board and committee meetings. Additional details will be provided prior to the meetings. We will continue to monitor the situation and evaluate upcoming events accordingly.
