As part of the continuing strategic alliance between ATDChi and DePaul University’s School for New Learning (SNL), we are very excited to announce a summer showcase event being co-presented by the two organizations. For the second year in a row, SNL is partnering with ATDChi for a lively evening of networking, learning, and resource sharing. The theme of this year’s event on June 22 is A New Model for Career Success.
During the networking portion of the event, you will have a chance to walk through the exhibits of SNL’s Master of Arts in Educating Adults (MAEA) graduates’ final applied projects and talk with them about the innovative learning and development strategies in their practice settings. In addition, you will make connections with area organizations that are recruiting learning and development professionals. The evening’s program will feature an engaging and informative keynote presented by Dr. Kerry Ann Rockquemore, on the topic of Mentoring & Coaching: A New Model for Career Success.
You will also have an opportunity to learn more about the School for New Learning’s innovative programs for adults, including the MAEA program. Through the SNL-ATDChi alliance, L&D professionals can apply their CPLP certifications, as well as their WLPI training, toward undergraduate or graduate degrees.

Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD, is President and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. Her scholarship has focused on interracial families, biracial identity, and the politics of racial categorization. She is author of two important books: Beyond Black and Raising Biracial Children, as well as over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. After Dr. Rockquemore became a tenured professor, her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for writing productivity and work/life balance. Her award-winning work with under-represented faculty led to the publication of her most recent book: The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul. Dr. Rockquemore provides workshops for faculty at colleges across the U.S., writes an advice column for Inside Higher Ed, and works with a select group of faculty each semester in the Faculty Success Program.
