The Brown Bag Series is a monthly event organized by the Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST) whose purpose is to provide a place for learning and discussion of topics to help women in STEM fields advance their careers.
This month we are bringing back our last month’s guest speaker Lindi Frost for a follow up session on conflict resolution. The first one was a great success and the attendees requested for a follow up. Considering the nature of the topic and participants’ needs, we are extending this month’s session to a two hour long interactive workshop. If you have missed our October session, not to worry as there will be a quick review.
