NEW Online Professional Development Opportunity

Posted by Tania Ortiz-Ashby

PASE is piloting professional development that combines self-paced learning and live online sessions, and we want you to be a part of it!

We have partnered with Change Up Learning to provide free access to a series - DEI for Managers.

This series will focus on the role leaders can play in bringing an equity lens to management in their organizations. The series will include pre-work completed online and two 2-hour live virtual sessions. During each session, participants will have time to review their organizations' practices and policies against the best practices presented to identify ways to advance equity in their organizations. The audience is executive directors and senior staff with hiring/supervision responsibilities.

  1. Part 1: Overview and Recruitment: Hiring and Onboarding, March 2, 2022, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM ET
  2. Part 2: Culture and HR: Professional Learning, Mentorship, and Performance Reviews, March 9, 2022, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM ET

Who Should Participate?

Executive directors and senior staff with hiring and supervision responsibilities are welcome to participate. This combination of asynchronous and synchronous format works best for learners who are self-motivated and can allocate time to complete the pre-work and attend the two live virtual sessions.
