Informal Lunch-time Round-Tables in Ottawa
Informal Lunch-time Round-tables in Ottawa
Our lunch-time round-tables are an informal get-together for networking and ethics discussion. We hold six per year, on different days of the week.
There are no set topics and the conversation covers whatever the participants wish. This is also an opportunity to share information with participants and make announcements about any ethics-related matters or events. There is no charge except what you choose for your lunch. Non-members of EPAC are welcome too. Please notify EPAC that you are coming at email@example.com so that we can reserve sufficient places. Put the location and date of the event in the subject line of your email, as in “February 23 Round Table Ottawa”. Looking forward to chatting with you!
The first lunch-time Ethics Round Table of 2016 in the National Capital Region took place on January 12 – a nice mix of French cuisine and whatever participants wished to talk about. One individual, working in a university ombudsman office, declared that the majority of cases that come to their attention are due to decisions taken too quickly and inattentively; students’ difficulties with finances and interpersonal relationships are other main causes. A consultant advised that those looking for ethics contracts with the federal government should read the mandate letters to ministers for hints on how to market their skills. We were an even dozen – six first-timers – and new faces are always welcome! .
