In his 6 years at Facebook, Mike Rognlien has done just about everything in the learning & development world. He has owned orientation and onboarding, built Facebook’s first-ever professional and manager development programming, partnered with COO Sheryl Sandberg and the LeanIn team to build Facebook’s Managing Unconscious Bias course (available to all at, and served as the L&D leader for both the technical teams across Facebook and the Americas as a region.

Mike has spent most of his career in tech – first with Intel, later as a consultant to Microsoft, and now Facebook – and is most passionate about helping people identify, develop and play to their strengths while teaching them how to leverage the same in others. He is currently serving as the L&D leader for the many business (G&A) functions at Facebook (think everything EXCEPT tech and sales) and owns the core development experience for people new to managing or new to managing at Facebook.

In addition, Mike is a main Facebook POC for performers, producers, composers, social media influencers, and other theater peeps on Broadway. He has seen Hamilton 17 times, loves running (badly) and has never met a shoe he didn’t at least kind of want to wear. He’s based at the FB Chicago office, has been at Facebook longer than 97% of its employees, and is now a fully-realized Chicago Cubs fan.
