Talent Development’s Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Statement:

Addressing the current climate of acts of racism and oppression, we feel a strong urgency to share the anti-racism resources from OIE, that embrace the key concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion.  Talent Development believes in the power of educating oneself to make positive and lasting changes.  We encourage you to explore the resources and commit to listen, to learn and engage in ways you may have not done before.

Talent Development’s Statistics

Talent Development Statistics for 2020-2021

Our training numbers were impacted by the shift away from face-to-face (f2f) training due to CSU’s response to COVID-19.

Thank you to OIE, HR, and OEO!

We would like to thank the Office of Inclusive Excellence, Human Resources and the Office of Equal Opportunity at Colorado State University for their partnership with us. Because of these offices, we are able to offer classes such as Rules of the Road and Inclusive Excellence part one and two. We would like to express our most sincere gratitude, the Supervisory Development Program would not be possible without the help of these offices!
