Roundtable for Learning Leaders

Topic: Toro’s Extended Learning Format

We’re excited to kick off the 2020 Roundtable schedule by learning how Toro has used an extended learning format to develop its current and emerging leaders. The two- to three-month learning experiences provide participants with opportunities to learn new skills, network, and apply learning to make an impact. It also helps to put the organization’s mission and vision into motion.
During the Roundtable, we will discuss how this program format came to be: what need it addressed, how support was garnered from key leadership, and how it might be useful to other organizations.
