For the Love of Learning

Learning Lessons from NRMC’s Executive Director

NRMC’s Melanie Lockwood Herman was recently inspired to see a consulting client devote a full day for all-staff training on topics ranging from diversity and inclusion to managing up. Melanie is an advocate for lifelong learning and professional development. Look back at some of Melanie’s articles on the topic of learning:

Get Melanie’s perspective on in her workshop, #HereToo: Workplace Harassment is Real, at our upcoming virtual conference Risk Connect. Also read Melanie’s recent article, “Workplace Harassment: An Unacceptable Risk.”
