In this hands-on, interactive session, we’ll discuss how to most effectively spend and save your income, while understanding something called, opportunity cost. It might not sound sexy, but it’s actually really cool!

We’ve all done it. Said the wrong pronoun, used the wrong name, and/or otherwise referred to someone in some sexed/gendered way and immediately wished we could take it back. (And, guess what?

Procrastination is a common enough experience, but it can cause significant stress, difficulties in planning and deprive you of a feeling of accomplishment and calm as you work. If you find yourself identifying with some of these struggles, this workshop is for you.
At this session, you’ll hear several short lightning talks from four different University of Waterloo staff members presenting on relevant topics from their areas of expertise. After the lightning talks, you’ll have an opportunity to join a breakout room with one of our lightning talk facilitators to learn more about the topic and ask questions.
