CDI Communities of Interest

Membership of a Community of Interest is a great way to make the most of virtual networking; communicating with members from a particular area of the career development sector, or with particular interests or specialisms, to share ideas, resources, examples of good practice etc.

Communities are mainly virtual, but can also involve face to face meetings. If you would like to lead a new Community of Interest, please contact jan.ellis@thecdi.net 

To join any of the Community of Interest LinkedIn groups, you must be signed up and logged in to your LinkedIn account, and you must first join the Career Development Institute LinkedIn Group.
