Program Description

ATD Memphis’ 2021 Program Theme is Intentional. Innovative. Inclusive. This year’s theme builds on lessons learned from 2020, from social distancing to social justice. The proverb, “Necessity is the mother of invention” was in full display. While in many ways 2020 was a turbulent year, there were some positives and we emerged more resolute and more resilient. With 2021 ahead of us, we need to move forward, improving on the lessons learned, with an intentional, innovative and inclusive mindset.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’ll delve into the specifics of leadership development, recruitment and retention of women.
