Central Eastern Region (Durham) Forum
We would like to invite you to our upcoming Central Eastern Region/Durham Region Forum at Ontario Tech University, on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.
The forum is a one day event that takes place between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. The goal is to bring regional post-secondary institutions and community organizations together to highlight the great work being done, seek and build collaborations and to facilitate networking. The forum is free to attend and includes lunch.
Please note: this forum is for campuses and community organizations ONLY.
The forum will start with a networking exercise run by our director Marija Padjen, followed by 10 min presentations from attendees who have asked to present. Presentations will consist of an organization’s current work and what they are looking for in terms of collaboration within their community.
We have also added a one hour session on compassionate fatigue at the start of the day. This MHW workshop on “Traumatic Stress and Compassion Fatigue Essentials” presents an overview of secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue. This workshop is a great learning opportunity for campus staff that provides tangible tools to support mental health and contribute to everyone’s wellbeing on campus.
To ensure there is enough room for everyone to attend, we request that organizations have no more than 3 members from their teams register for the forum.
If you wish to present or have any dietary restrictions, please email Mahreen Dasoo at firstname.lastname@example.org
