The CLO Holiday Wish List

Litmos

We love tearing those ribbons and wrapping paper off and enjoying the surprise of what lies beneath. Of course, we usually just share these experiences with our loved ones, but what if we could do the same in the professional realm?

How to Become a Digital CLO

The Economic Virtue of Teaching Diversity

CLO Magazine

If today Tocqueville toured an American university or corporation with a diversity and inclusion program, I believe he would see freedom and democracy at work.
