ATD Mid New Jersey is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series. This collaboration of 6 ATD chapters (including Eastern PA, Greater Philadelphia, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, Long Island & New York City) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content.  We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2021.

We will explore unconscious attitudes that can manifest in people interactions in the work place, and the various triggers such race, gender, positional hierarchy, situational and environmental, to name a few.

Being aware of their own implicit biases, helps leaders become more inclusive.
