Staff Resource Center for Professional Development & Educational Leadership
Dear Sacramento City College Colleagues:
Greetings SCC colleagues!
This week of November 18-24, professional development focuses on face to face/on ground and virtual workshops:
- The Ethics of having children
- Professional Development Online, California Community College Chancellor’s Office website, Vision Resource Center.
- If you did not turn in your “Faculty Flex Obligation form“, please do so. It was due to your dean’s office by November 15.
See the calendar of events below.
On behalf of the Staff Resource Center for Professional Development, we invite you to consider submitting and/or requesting Professional Development & Flex, the week of January 13-17, for Spring 2020 . The theme is “Student Success”. Once again, the SCC Equity Framework can assist in emphasizing capacity building. As the college continues to focus on training and development related to teaching, learning, and service, while strengthening and demonstrating student success and support, the SRC and its partner initiatives of Student Equity, Student Success and Support, Hispanic Serving Institute, SAGE & SESI/STEM, Guided Pathways, and Achieve The Dream, ATD (ATD Model- Building Core Capacities) request your proposals for professional development. We seek workshops and professional development events related to district initiatives, college/division/department, and unit/program/resource plans that address campus wide goals and objectives.
We look forward to your proposal submissions! Webinar options may also be submitted. After gathering the complete information on this Proposal/request form, you will be contacted to set up and schedule the event. Please complete a separate form for either the “Proposal for a workshop/event I would like to organize/facilitate” and/or “Request for a professional development workshop/event”.

Companies often target consumers based on gender, but this kind of advertising shortcut doesn’t just perpetuate outdated stereotypes — it’s also bad for business, says marketing expert Gaby Barrios. In this clear, actionable talk, she explains why gender-based marketing doesn’t drive business nearly as much as you might think — and shows how companies can find better ways to reach customers and grow their brands.
