HR-Civ NDWCC Events - Lunch and Learns
In the spirit of the National Defence Workplace Charitable Campaign (NDWCC), our fellow HR(Civ) colleagues have offered to share their lunch hours, to showcase topics of interest to them. Our lunch and learn hosts, will share their knowledge and expertise during a series of informal and interactive chats the week of February 23–26, 2021.
Our colleagues will provide you with their insights, bringing you tips and tricks in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. Although these lunch and learns are not a replacement for any formal training, they will provide you an opportunity to deepen your understanding on a host’s topic while allowing you to build your network and connect with DT colleagues.
To support the NDWCC efforts, each event will be $10.00. All proceeds will go towards the NDWCC. To register for an event, please click on the following link to select your event(s):
