Professional Development Conference 2021 | June 7-10
Exploring the Gateways of Opportunities
After years of offering only one day of professional development, this year we are bringing you a weeklong event! The event is primarily virtual with some hybrid options (in-person and virtual). Check out the Event Schedule and Brochure! This year, we are partnering with the Employee Wellness Fair to create a “one-stop shop” event. The UW-Eau Claire Employee Wellness group will be bringing in local vendors to showcase their businesses and share their expertise.
This year’s theme, Exploring the Gateway of Opportunities, is a reflection on the past events of adapting to a pandemic working lifestyle and looking forward to what those changes have introduced as opportunities for the future of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and all of our locations as well as extending the conference to colleagues at other UW institutions and community partners.
University Staff Professional Development Committee:
The Professional Development Conference is planned throughout the year by a group of ten University Staff. If you have questions about the event, please visit the committee will be in touch.
