Message from Jeff...
Hello ATD Golden Gate community!

You may have noticed that in 2021 we have been focusing on building community and belonging by offering multiple social learning events each month to engage the Talent Development professionals in the Bay Area. If you're looking for a way to connect, perhaps one of our more socially oriented events below may be the place for you?

  • The core skills Talent Development professionals need are difficult to develop in a bubble. Our twice-monthly ATD Capability discussions in our Holistic Learning Design SIG look at these core capabilities and help you to apply them to your personal, professional and organizational development.

  • Have you ever watched a TEDx presentation and wanted to discuss it with someone? Well here's your chance, our monthly TED Circles events let you connect and share as a local community while discussing meaningful topics.

ATD Golden Gate is where you can meet other local talent development professionals, learn something new and discuss the topics that are near-and-dear to your heart. If we haven't already, we would love to bring you into our family by seeing you at one of our virtual events.

Registration closed 4/19 to allow time for brief 1-1 online orientations during the week before the program, but if you 'just forgot', reply here today, and we can probably get you get you in.
