Director, Learning and Talent Development
Mel Ramirez joined GDC in July 2021 to build and deploy a robust talent development program that will attract, develop, motivate, and retain talented, engaged employees. Having spent the last fifteen years working in both operations and talent development roles, Mel knows what truly drives career development — and it’s definitely not just policy handbooks and PowerPoints. It’s about learning to identify and capitalize on the strengths and abilities of individuals, to help them learn and grow professionally.
Mel received her Bachelor of Arts with a concentration of Human Development, from California Baptist University. As Director of Learning and Talent Development, Mel will be responsible for designing, implementing, and delivering developmental programs to include onboarding, employee relations, team engagement, diversity, and inclusion, hiring, and crisis management. Cumulatively, she has personally delivered and facilitated training sessions around the globe to over 5,000 people for multiple Fortune 500 companies.
