#UWSC2021 Registration Open

Next week kicks off the 2021 Waterloo Staff Conference (WSC), happening virtually on April 6-9. The event will feature great keynote presentations and fantastic workshops and activities you can attend from the comfort of your own home or your office. Registration is currently open for all events and activities and will remain opening during the conference.  This annual event (apart from 2020!) has been signature part of learning and development activities for Waterloo employees since 2008. We are very excited to be able to bring this event to you virtually for this year.  

Good to know:

  • Registration takes place through Portal. You will receive an email confirmation that will include your Teams link to attend for each registered session and it will include an attached calendar file to import into your Outlook Calendar.
  • Registration will remain open during the entire conference for your convenience to assist those with changing or last-minute schedules.  If you can unexpectedly attend a keynote or session, you can register at any time – even during the keynote – and receive a confirmation with your Teams attendance link.
  • No attendance caps are in place for the keynote speakers. There’s plenty of virtual room for everybody!
  • You can download a Waterloo Staff Conference 2021 Timetable (PDF) to see the sessions at-a-glance.

Spring term workshops

Spring came a little bit early to our region and so has Organizational and Human Development’s (OHD) Spring offerings! We’ve taken your feedback, thoughts, and suggestions from our original virtual offerings to hone these workshops to best suit your current needs.

Some course highlights include: our revamped Core Development series, Strengthening Your Emotional Intelligence, as well as popular favourites, such as Personality Dimensions, Facilitation Fundamentals, Integrity Matters, and more. Explore dates and offerings on our Calendar of Workshops

Currently all workshops and events will be online and hosted in Microsoft Teams. An invite will be sent to you by the workshops facilitator(s). If you have questions, or have not received your invite prior to the course, please contact ohd@uwaterloo.ca.

NOTE:  If a course offering on Workday fills up (as does the waitlist), the system removes the workshop from being visible on Workday so that should someone unenroll, that spot is automatically filled from the Waitlist. Once spots are available again on the waitlist, the course will be visible again in Workday. 


    We are here to help! Questions about workshops or registration? Please contact OHD about workshop registration, including cancellations and enrollment.    

    Questions about this communication? Please contact Mark Lisetto-Smith, Manager, Operations and Marketing, Organizational and Human Development.
