701 Maximize Your Growth as a Learning Leader: A Panel Discussion

1:30 PM - 2:30 PM ET
Wednesday, December 6

Developing and maintaining a leadership pipeline is a struggle for many organizations, especially with large numbers of Baby Boomer employees retiring. As organizations struggle to future-proof and diversify their leadership, who better to turn to than up-and-coming employees who have demonstrated their leadership ability—and who represent a diverse, highly skilled talent pool?

The Learning Guild recognizes exemplary young leaders in the L&D space each year at the Learning Conference through our Thirty Under 30 program. In this interactive panel session, you will hear from alumni of this program. Our panelists will share their strategies and lessons learned as they leveraged their passion, skills, and knowledge of L&D to rise through the ranks. We’ll address how to recognize and benefit from growth opportunities, how they’ve overcome barriers and exploded stereotypes that could have held them back, and their proven practices for fostering and maintaining strategic relationships, both inside their organizations and across L&D networks.
