Each season, the University of Utah Professional Education Department will be bringing you a panel of experts on a topic. Attend all three events and earn a badge from the University showcasing your professional development. For the Summer 2022 season, we will be focusing on Equity. What does it mean to treat others fairly in the workplace, and how can we extend this consideration to ourselves?
Each event will begin at 12 pm, and will offer attendants a chance to hear from an expert, ask questions and make connections with other professionals. Light refreshments will be served and participants are invited to bring their own “brown bag” lunch to the event.
