What does it take to be a leader? In a world of rapid change and growing uncertainty, having strong leaders can help us to stay grounded and feel safe. But what does leadership look like? Explore this and more at our upcoming TED Discussion.

Speaking of leadership, did you know that ATD Golden Gate is nearly 100% volunteer-run? That’s right, everything that we do from hosting events, to managing our finances, to onboarding new members, is done by L&D professionals who volunteer their time to help people like you.

That being said, we could use some help. More specifically, we are looking for a new CFO to help us track and manage our financials so we can stay financially healthy. Interested? Reach out to president@tdgoldengate.org to learn more.
