The Learning Guild routinely explores important topics
impacting learning leaders. Several recent research projects may be of special

  • The first is a look at
    L&D professionals who felt their organizations did well during the
    pandemic. What supported success? What did they learn, and what can they
    teach us? And what does this mean for L&D leaders heading into what
    promises to be a bright future?

  • The second shines a light
    on women in L&D who have, in the spirit of International Women’s Day’s
    2021 theme “choosing to challenge,” taken myriad paths to establish
    themselves as leaders—sometimes in formal roles, sometimes not.

  • Finally, our June 2021
    report examined the subject of degrees for those in L&D, looking at
    the what, why, and worth of pursuing advanced academic work, a topic
    useful both for those aspiring to promotions as well as those in the role
    of hiring managers.

In this session, Dr. Jane Bozarth, The Learning Guild’s director
of research, will review this important research and examine tips and takeaways
that we can use to improve our practice.
