Our educational programs are focused on growth – growing your team, growing your knowledge and growing your career.


Educational Programs

Our workshops and programs reflect our members’ priorities and provide actionable insight for improving your business and your performance.  We offer half day workshops on topics such as creating an inclusive culture, delegation and accountability, and presentation skills. 

We also provide functional leaders with the insights they need to stay in front of current trends within their area of practice through our NOW series.  HR leaders receive up to the date information on immigration policy, finance leaders explore how to successfully scale, CTOs debate the #noprojects movement, and more.

Leadership Circles

ITA’s Leadership Circles provide an opportunity for senior leaders to exchange information and ideas, to work together to optimize best practices and find ways to accelerate growth and learning. By providing a selective, strategic and structured way for business leaders to engage with their peers, participants will become more capable, effective leaders.

Each Circle is composed of 8 – 12 senior leaders. While specific title doesn't matter, most participants hold Director, VP or C-Level titles or have responsibility for a significant function within their organization. Facilitated by an executive coach, participants will meet in person once a month for four months.

We are currently accepting applications for our next Leadership Circle cohort, which will kick off in late May. Application deadline is April 30th. The cohort will run for four months with participants meeting once per month. Cost per individual is $2000 for ITA members and $4000 for non-members.
