Virtual Lunch & Learns
A Monthly Opportunity to Expand Your Skills
Virtual Lunch & Learns
In an effort to flatten the COVID-19 curve of impact, GlobalPDX is postponing all in-person events. Instead, please consider joining one of our Virtual Lunch & Learns, all of which are recorded and shared on our Youtube Channel. Make sure you are included in our newsletter to stay informed about our upcoming virtual events, and the launch of our podcast!
Bring your lunch and hear from experts in a wide variety of fields who are excited to share their skills, experience, and training. Lunch and Learns are hour long sessions lead by an expert in their field. This event ranges from workshop-style, to informational presentations, to sharing career/pathway opportunities. Lunch and Learns are always from noon-1pm, and are usually located downtown.
These events are free to members.
