What are these “working groups” you refer to?
Our working groups (WGs) come in lots of shapes and sizes! Groups are formed around themes (ex: Localization), policy pieces (ex: Direction and Control) or specific divisions (ex: CFOs). Anyone can join a working group or create one!
Why create a conference around them?
Cooperation Canada, in its continuous effort to cater to its members, will hold a two-day event tailored for its Working Groups, scheduled on November 16-17 from 1:00pm till 5:00pm.
Working groups have gone through lots of changes in the past year: we introduced a new WG model, the sector had to deal with a big ol’ pandemic, and our staff also shifted around quite a bit.
During this virtual conference, we aim to create a space allowing you to…
- meet with your Working Group if you’re part of one,
- or pop into a WG meeting to learn more about them,
- be part of thematic brainstorms, a speed dating session, trainings and more!
Learning, networking and collaboration are the ultimate objectives of this event as sessions are designed for members to have ample opportunity to engage with their peers.
What else is happening at the conference?
Two things: cool trainings and important brainstorms!
This conference is a chance to reconnect and center collaboration as a motor for social change!
Why should you attend ?
As a member, this is a chance for you to network with your peers, fine-tune your collaborative work and learn from other sector organizations. We also hope you’ll get to know about what Cooperation Canada can do to support and help you!
