This year's holiday event did not happen in person, however the people who attended had a lot of fun participating in the online trivia hosted by Geeks Who Drink. Three Teams participated: Silent Knights, GrinchGang and Eggnog'ns, with the Grinch Gang winning bragging rights as top team!
Best part of the event was collecting $430 in donations from the event and the chapter double matching for a total of $1300 going to Crossroads RI. Thanks to all who participated and helping those in need during the holidays.
NOVEMBER - THRILL TO LEARN FROM THOSE ON THE OUTSIDE
We had a great event earlier this month with speakers from Brown University and Roger Williams Park Zoo where they helped us learn from the outside how to pivot during these challenging times to reach their audiences virtually.
Wednesday, October 21st, we had a great discussion during our Let's Talk About: Unconscious Bias event, where over 30 people participated virtually. Thanks to our participants and panelists: Herb Dyer, Pauline Shanks Kaurin and Wendy Picard.
On Friday, September 25th, we kicked off the Thrill Ride of Learning with a great turnout and a variety of best practices shared at our Thriving in the Remote Environment event. Huge thanks to all the attendees, Crowley & Co. and Fountainworks for joining us.
ATD Bay Colonies has a new star to share with you - we were recently recognized for a submission to the ATD “Sharing Our Success” (SOS) program. The national SOS program identifies best practices among local ATD chapters and uses them as models for other chapters. Jennifer Labrie Pereira, Chair of ATD’s Chapter Recognition Committee said, "This recognition honors the Bay Colonies chapter best practice that demonstrates its commitment to managing a successful organization as well as advancing the talent development profession at the local level. We are honored to recognize the chapter with ATD's SOS recognition.”
