Interested in some physically distant dialogue? To keep staff connected and encourage engagement between TRLN colleagues on a variety of topics, we are developing a recurring and remote discussion series. We see this as an opportunity for staff to participate in intriguing conversation with colleagues, share their own expertise, and learn new things all while enjoying a variety of films, podcasts, and articles.
Twice per month, we will select a title for discussion that you can watch, listen to, or read at a time that fits your schedule. Then we will have a scheduled discussion via Zoom or other platforms for participants to discuss the title and what resonated with them. We will add information for specific titles and discussions to TRLN’s website as we schedule them.
