Professional development is changing. We're travelling less, and logging in more. Budgets have been cut, and we need to learn in faster cycles as we respond to a changing world.
In response, Leadership + Design is launching a new series of one-off, digital learning experiences.
The Discovery Seriesoffers interactive remote sessions, balancing content and skills with discussion, paths for application and reflection. They meet on the third Thursday of each month, at 10am PST/1pm EST.
Registration for our Discovery Series webinars are $50, or $25 for members of L+Doers Unite. (The September 2020 kickoff webinar on Election Week, however, is free!)
