Looking to present at our event?

Sessions are selected to promote both professional and personal development for achieving work-life balance through enhanced skills, inspiring innovation/creative thinking and establishing goals to continuously improve the workplace. This annual event is open to all UW-Eau Claire employees, as well as external attendees from other UW System campuses, Wisconsin technical colleges and community partners. It is designed as a collaborative environment of networking and ongoing learning opportunities for employees who work outside the classroom — those who work in the classroom are welcome to attend.

The event is in person on June 5th and we are requesting presentations be 50 minutes.  If you are interested in presenting, please email a topic and summary of your session proposal to Kristi Bergstrom at
