UW Tacoma Professional Development Center is excited to announce the three winners of our first-ever scholarship for emerging HR professionals.
Former PDC student Laurie Miller shares how obtaining a professional certificate from UW Tacoma nearly a decade ago helped her grow her career and remain up to date with her skills while working full-time.
Project management skills are actually universally applicable on the job and at home – being a good project manager also makes you a more effective person in life. It gives you practical skills to accomplish more and reach new heights personally and professionally.
“To make a (career) change at the age of 50 and to move away from a career that I am good at is the stuff of craziness. But when I really sat down and really thought about why would I stay ... they were safe, they were comfortable, but they didn’t support my own growth.”
Ryan Berry, PDC alum of PDC Lean Six Sigma Green and Black Belt and Project Management courses, found transformational cultural change at his workplace through the implementation of the knowledge he gained through professional development at UW Tacoma.
DEI-related job postings increased 76% between February 2020 and August 2021 alone. With that in mind, we’ve curated a small list of articles, videos, and other resources for employers or leaders at all levels looking to make their team or organization more inclusive.
The Professional Development Center's refreshed program has no application, requires no recommendations or nominations and does not need to be taken in a specific order.
