In addition to the facilitated learning, attendees will have the chance to network and get to know other participants during our session breaks. We're also bringing back panelists from our October TAT program on "Alternative Approaches to Attracting New Talent" (City Gospel, JobsPlus, Easterseals, The Help Program, and Job Search Focus Group,etc.) to answer questions throughout the evening. Each organization will have a table with information to share. Adult beverages (Each attendee will receive 2 drink tickets) and soft drinks will be served, in addition to appetizers and finger food. 

The program will take a pro-active approach by offering multiple hot trends in talent acquisition. Participants will get the opportunity to choose 3 topics and participate by moving from table to table staffed by the SME for that hot topic. The SME will introduce the topic in a short 5-minute overview and the remaining 15 minutes the SME will facilitate Q&A/discussion with the participants at the table. The topics are: 

(1) Strategies to Prevent Candidate Ghosting (SME - Matt Baker) 
(2) Understanding How to Stay Up to Date on Talent Acquisition Trends (SME - Jodi Brandstetter)
(3) Updating HR Policies to Better Attract Talent (SME - Walt Tracy)
(4) Recruiters Role In Building Diversity & Inclusion (SME – Ashlee Essex)
