2020 Greater Atlanta ATD Mentor/Mentee Information Program

Starting in 2020, Greater Atlanta ATD will begin our mentoring program. The mentoring program is designed to help members develop and grow from one another. Mentees will have an opportunity to discuss, receive honest and constructive feed-back and get access to the information, knowledge and experience from a seasoned L&D professional.  Mentors will have the opportunity to reflect on their own practice, enhance peer recognition and gain personal satisfaction through supporting the development of others
