We are excited to offer new sessions in the Courageous Conversations - Let’s Talk series.  Each session in this series will be facilitated by a member of the T&PS Management Council and will cover a different topic.  These small-group videoconference sessions will once again include up to 15-20 people to allow everyone to feel comfortable and have time to share their perspectives. If a session is full, you can sign up for a waiting list to be notified if a spot becomes available.

Once you register, participants will receive a calendar invite along with an option to submit anonymous questions. Please note, we will hold these discussions with our cameras on for better interaction. You also have the option to add any questions, ideas, or suggestions you would like the Management Council to focus on via this anonymous Microsoft Forms survey

We hope you will join us in this opportunity to get to know the T&PS Management Council, hear from different people throughout the organization, and engage in genuine conversation.
