DAU workshops allow the workforce to quickly learn about a specific subject and leave with actionable products and information. While normally presented in intact-team formats, it's not always possible to get everyone together, even if a program could benefit from the information and tools provided. Our Open Workshops bridge that gap by offering individuals from different programs and organizations a chance to come together as a team and undergo a DAU workshop while networking with like-minded peers–plus, attendees walk away with actionable skills that they can apply directly to their programs.
The workshops are virtual and attendance is limited, so register early!
Registration is now open for workshops in April and May.
