UofT Managers Academy Cohorts


The University of Toronto knows that to build on its success, it is essential that members of its Professional & Managerial employee group are skilled and engaged managers.  In 2013-2014, U of T reinforced its commitment to provide new managers with the tools and ongoing resources they need to develop themselves and their teams.  Working with a number of partners and consultants, the Division of Human Resources & Equity developed the New Managers Academy. In response to your requests, we are opening this program to include all PM 3 to 6 Managers with at least one direct report.

NOTE: Registration requires participation in all four days of the specific cohort, no exceptions. The training is designed to build throughout the program, so attendance at all four sessions is crucial.   Cohorts will be offered a number of times over the year to allow staff to select the cohort where they can attend all 4 days at ODLC, 9:00-4:00.  Lunch provided by ODLC.
