Operations Career Development & Networking Workshop (OCDNW)

Friday, April 23, 2021, 2:00-3:30 p.m.

Please join us for the first in a series of virtual career development and networking workshops aimed toward business operations and administrative staff. The purpose is to highlight and serve the interests, talents, and professional development of current and future business operations staff at Berkeley Lab. We seek to work amongst our peer group to communicate and align with key partners across the Lab to provide input on dynamic constituent interests requiring business operations support. This inaugural event will feature opportunities for future engagement and networking. All are welcome to attend and support our initiatives.

REGISTER HERE by COB on Friday, April 16 to receive a calendar invitation with Zoom details.
