    The ATD Greater Boston Chapter Special Interest Group on Learning Measurement Presents:

    What Caused It? Techniques to Isolate the Effects of Your Program

    with Patti  Phillips, Ph.D., CPLP

    January 27, 2021

    2:00 PM to 3:15 PM

    VIRTUAL EVENT - Link in registration email

    Are your learning programs producing business results? How can you demonstrate results to key stakeholders?

    Most talent development programs are linked to business measures. While business measures may improve after a program is implemented, unless evaluators take steps to isolate the effects of the project on that improvement, they have no credible claim to the improvement–leaving stakeholders to wonder “What caused it?”

    Learn techniques to the effects of talent development programs. Help business partners better allocate resources to different programs. Case studies will demonstrate each technique. Participants will calculate the improvement in business measures as described in the case studies.

    Objectives

    • Describe the importance of isolating the effects of programs.
    • Apply at least three techniques to isolate the effects of programs.
    • Determine when to use each of the techniques covered in this session.

    Tools, templates, case studies, job aids, and books are provided to participants who attend and complete the interactive session.

    ATD Greater Boston Presents:
    Recognizing and Addressing Microaggressions

    with Dr. Celeste Malone

    Thursday, February 18, 2021

    Virtual event - link in registration email

    12:30pm – 2:00pm

    Microaggressions are brief exchanges that send denigrating messages to individuals of socially marginalized groups. These messages are often unconscious and may be delivered in the form of subtle snubs, dismissive looks, gestures, or tones. Experiencing microaggressions can have a deleterious impact on emotional health, including depressive symptoms, negative affect, and lowered self-esteem. Microaggressions that occur in educational settings or work settings may particularly affect individuals’ self-worth and beliefs about their competency. As such, talent development professionals need to be able to identify microaggressions, understand how microaggressions impact recipients, and engage in corrective action when microaggressions occur. The objectives of this session are to (1) increase individuals’ knowledge of microaggressions and their impact and (2) provide guidance on appropriate ways to respond to microaggressions.
