Professional Development

Throughout the year, we have a variety of school events to stay connected while having fun at work.

Additional professional development opportunities:

Pitchfork Certification Series

The ASU Office of Human Resources has connected with the Sun Devil Rewards loyalty program. You can now enhance your professional development while building up “Pitchforks” in the ASU Sun Devil Rewards app! 

Receive 25 Pitchforks at an LWD workshop, by, first, downloading the app to your mobile device using Apple App Store or GooglePlay before you come to a workshop. Then, upon completion of the workshop, you can 'check in' on the app on your mobile device and the Pitchforks will be added to your Sun Devil Rewards account, putting you closer to great rewards you can find in the Sun Devil Rewards catalog!
