PLEASE NOTE: In order to keep our State employees safe, we are suspending all live classroom training sessions until further notice as we adhere to the current restrictions for social distancing implemented due to COVID-19. ETD is identifying options for virtual classes to support the training and development needs of all State employees. As we carry out this transition, we will update our website with new, virtual training events as they are developed and ready to launch. If you have an interest in a particular class and wish to receive a reminder when the class is available, please e-mail us at  ETD Training Email.

The Enterprise Talent Development course calendar is filled with courses to help you grow individually or to assist your team in taking the next step to success.

September
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are terms that have been defined in many different and often confusing and conflicting ways. There are still many misperceptions about DEI and why it makes good business sense. This orientation will clarify definitions, provide evidence that diversity, when managed well, can positively impact the bottom line, and heighten awareness of the barriers to sustaining an equitable and inclusive culture. This session is good for anyone who has not taken a Diversity and Inclusion course before. It will provide foundational learning.

People with disabilities can achieve success in nearly any job, yet some employers still worry that they may be unqualified for certain work or may not be productive.
