 ATDps: Affinity Groups: Their Effectiveness and Efficacy


In this virtual panel discussion, we’ll be joined by local affinity/equality group leaders. We hear strategies for growing and supporting affinity groups, the best ways to engage with them, and the places where Talent Development professionals can fill in the opportunity gaps that affinity groups alone cannot close.
