Event Details and Registration

ATDWV Webinar - DE&I, From Your Perspective.

  • Wednesday, November 17, 2021
  • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
  • Virtual via Zoom


  • Registration is complementary for active members of the ATD West Virginia Chapter. If you are due for renewal, please renew your dues before registering for this event.
  • Registration for non-chapter members requires a nonrefundable $5 charge to help us offset the costs associated with our webinar and registration platform. A major benefit of being a member of our chapter is that it offers you free access to our webinar series. Another feature of our chapter is membership qualifies you for an annual discount on your national ATD dues also!

    Not from West Virginia? That's ok, we're a virtual chapter and welcome prospective members from outside our state as well! We'd love to have you join us!

    When you figure the discounts on webinars and national dues, membership gives you a net cost of less than one cup of coffee per month! So we think we offer a great value for the price, and your dues stay local to help enable us to keep offering events like these, and more! Thank you for considering joining/renewing with our chapter today!

Registration is closed

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) efforts can bring unique perspectives and experiences to the table inspiring greater creativity and innovation within teams.

We also know that DE&I is an uncomfortable topic to discuss, but the first steps are the hardest. As a TD professional:

  • What can you do to help everyone in your organization be involved in the conversation around inclusion?

  • How can you use DE&I to benefit: your organization/leaders? your learners/talent? yourself?

In this session, we will explore & discuss:

  • What are the challenges in understanding Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion?

  • What does culture have to do with it?

  • How do you get comfortable with discomfort?

These are general objectives. The session will be tailored to your survey responses, please take the survey no later than Wednesday, November 10th at:
