Canceled - Champions for Change: Networking with Your Professional Development Plan (PDP)


Location: Idea Center (View on map )

Pdp Workshop Heather Talking To Group

As part of the THRIVE! Champions for Change year, the Professional Development and Networking (PD&N) committee presents the culminating event of the Professional Development Plan (PDP) series: Speed Networking!

Join us to meet 15 new colleagues in randomly assigned, structured 3-minute pairings to share insights from your PDPs. Aren't familiar with a PDP? Learn about this hard-working yet agile one-page document that helps you navigate your career journey, inspiring networking conversations to guide you toward your short- and long-term goals. Don't have a PDP? Catch up here to prepare yours with a template.


Feel free to bring lunch, but it might be difficult to find time to eat while speed networking! There will be food trucks in the IDEA Center parking lot.

Praise for the first part of the PDP series:

"I thought the event was fabulous! Heather is relatable, aspirational and approachable."

"What a great event!"

"I'm looking forward to seeing what the PDP can do for me."

"I'm so grateful for the resources Notre Dame offers its employees, from career deep dives, to conflict resolution training, to project management. Heather's presentation gave me one powerful tool not only to synthesize my development and experience onto 1-page, but also prompted me to clearly identify aspirational next steps on the horizon, making it easy to have meaningful conversations with peers and supervisors alike. I was thrilled to see the PDP approach rolled out to an entire division; I can easily see this tool integrating into every coaching conversations."
