    Gwen Navarrete Klapperich, M.Ed, CPTD

    Chief Learning Consultant,

    Klapperich International Training Associates (KITA) LLC

    Gwen Navarrete Klapperich is Chief Learning Consultant of Klapperich International Training Associates (KITA) LLC, a talent development consulting firm that specializes in employee training and development, diversity and inclusion initiatives, performance consulting, and health and safety training. She holds over 20 years of experience in training and development, customer service supervision, and quality assurance initiatives.

Gwen holds a master’s degree in education specializing in training and performance improvement from Capella University. She has dedicated her career to helping adult learners reach their professional goals through effective job training.

    Session Description:

    Today’s training programs cannot be one-size-fits all. We have a diverse workforce who may have challenges understanding learning concepts due to challenges ranging from English language barriers to physical and cognitive disabilities. We need to address learner needs based on a wide range of ability, disability, age, reading level, learning preferences, native language, race, and ethnicity, to name a few. But how do we make our training as inclusive as possible?

    Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an instructional method that challenges us to go beyond the ADA, Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Section 508 requirements to use a framework that reduces as many barriers to learning as possible, especially for workers with low literacy, English language learners, and employees with disabilities.

    In this session, we will explore and discuss the three elements of UDL: representation (the WHAT of learning), action and expression (the HOW of learning) and engagement (the WHY of learning). We will also examine ways to incorporate these principles into our current and future training designs.

    After participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:

    1. Identify various learning challenges and barriers that today’s workers may encounter

    2. Define and discuss the three elements for Universal Design for Learning: representation, action and expression, and engagement

    3. Determine ways in which to apply UDL to their current and future training programs

    This program aligns with domain two of the ATD Capability Model: Cultural Awareness and Inclusion.

    Rebecca Bales

    Partner, Lumina Learning USA

    Rebecca is an expert in Organizational and Human Development. She has worked in this field since 1995 and has a background in Psychology and Human Dynamics with her graduate work in Organizational Development. Rebecca is an ACC certified coach through the International Coaching Federation, an adjunct professor in leadership development at the University of Texas at Dallas, and a member of the Forbes Coaches Council and the National Speakers Association. Her experience as an organizational consultant and executive coach ranges from Fortune 500 companies to privately owned mid-size and public-sector clients.

    Rebecca is currently a Global Partner for the Lumina Learning USA, a worldwide talent development organization headquartered in London with offices in over 44 countries with a mission to support organizations in creating and sustaining inclusive environments that support and develop the people, their most valuable natural resource.

    Rebecca’s personal mission is to change the way in which people work together which permeates true culture shifts. The core of this process is to help individuals increase their self-awareness so that they can then recognize and utilize their own unique abilities and the unique ability of others. Once that is achieved at the highest levels in an organization, true culture shift occurs which transcends the environment into one of human respect and inclusion.

    Rebecca is a published author of "Step up to the Plate: The Power of Passion and Determination" which focuses on personal change and transformation. She has run women programs, many of these based on her book, both internationally and across the USA for clients and women associations. She is a co-author with Drs. Ken Blanchard and Deepak Chopra in "Roadmap to Success." Rebecca lives in Plano, Texas with her husband and their dog Bailey, and she runs the Lumina Learning USA office in Dallas where she oversees clients and practitioners across the Americas.

    Session Description:

    Empowering knowledge enables you to make better choices - to change, grow and influence.

    This interactive session is designed to build self-awareness in leaders and assist them in supporting the self-awareness of others. Attendees will recognize and under-stand their actions and reactions, under normal circumstances as well as under stress and pressure, and how these behaviors can determine their eectiveness of the leadership and shape the culture of an organization. Emphasis is on tips and techniques to building a leader's emotional agility to drive the elimination of unconscious bias within the organization.

    During this session, participants will:

    1. Understand who they are and how they show up under natural situations as well as high pressure situations.

    2. Learn how to better connect with and influence others based on the scenario they are involved in.

    3. Discover how to view others through a lens that eliminates unconscious bias to see the true value and strengths of those with whom they are working or interacting.

    4. Be able to raise their emotional agility so that they may choose better actions and reactions during their interactions.

    This program aligns with domain two of the ATD Capability Model: Collaboration and Leadership.
