Virtual Event

The Technology Leadership Development Program’s (TLDP) vision is to develop future leaders in BD’s R&D organization by providing TLDP associates with broad and deep technical assignments across BD. The program consists of three progressively more challenging assignments (1.5-2 years each) that can span multiple businesses and / or locations within the Company. These assignments are designed to strengthen technical depth and leadership skills. A personalized and dynamic career path is sculpted for each TLDP associate with the influence of senior R&D leaders and your personal skills and interests.

Program features

· Custom-designed rotational assignments guided by participants' input, resulting in a fluid, flexible and dynamic career development experience 
· Assignments focused on developing each participant's technical strength, leadership abilities, cross-functional skills and business acumen 
· Assignments spanning multiple locations and BD businesses within key research and development facilities located in or near the following major cities: New York City, NY; Baltimore, MD; Raleigh, NC; San Diego, CA; San Jose, CA; Salt Lake City, UT; Chicago, IL; Boston, MA; Phoenix, AZ; Providence, RI; and Atlanta, GA 
· Rotation opportunities outside of associate’s domain expertise build breadth by providing exposure to different technology fields, phases of product development, and job functions. Potential for career growth in technology-based roles earned by quickly learning the business, and exhibiting quality leadership and strong technical skills
