Join ATD NYC (Association for Talent Development New York City Chapter) at the Science Industries and Business Library (SIBL) to explore the great value of Research and Libraries for Talent Development Professionals. 

This chapter event is organized in a close collaboration with the Career Development Special Interest Group (SIG).

This event can be especially useful for small Learning and Development teams in nonprofit, healthcare, public and cultural institutions. 

NOTE: Given the location, we will not be able to provide food/drink at this event.

Kick-off with an interactive presentation to explore resources

We will deep dive into priority research topics for Learning, Talent and Organizational development professionals. Our speakers, Marzena Ermler and Ross Takahashi (see below) will explore available resources that can help you to stay up to date with current developments and trends in the profession, and to develop careers and small businesses.  They will showcase how to research evidence-based interventions, and how to access critical data such as databases with industry surveys and market research.

Panel Discussion
Our Panel of researchers and talent development professionals will discuss the importance of research and Library Resources, both for their individual practice, as for our profession at large.
