Human Resources Professional Development (HR PD) Seminars

Human Resources is pleased to offer virtual professional development seminars for all UNLV employees. Seminars are designed to build skills in a wide-range of topics that directly relate to the work we do here at UNLV. Trainers create an engaging environment that combines presentations and activities with thought-provoking discussions.

Each topic is offered as a series of multiple sessions. Content builds upon previous discussions, so we encourage you to attend all sessions in a series. This will allow you to participate in a meaningful way and maximize the benefits of your experience.

Because of the interactive and engaging nature of the training, participants must join from a computer with a working video camera and microphone. Participation is free, registration is required, and space is limited. Registration opens six weeks before the series and closes the Monday before the series begins.
