Academic Staff Chats

An academic staff chat is a frank, open discussion with a small group of your colleagues on a particular topic. Some topics may include a speaker or panel prior to ample discussion time. All sessions are free of charge.

In-person sessions meet from 11:30am – 1:00pm and include lunch. Virtual sessions meet from 12:00pm – 1:00pm. Registration is limited to 30 participants to ensure a fruitful small group discussion.
