WST March 2023 – Call for Participation

Call for Participation


We are looking for colleagues to contribute to our upcoming biennial Work Smarter Together event – Celebrating Us.

This event will take place on Thursday, March 23 2023, 10am – 4pm

As a key part of the March 2023 event, we are calling for colleagues to showcase their professional achievements from the last few years.
It is envisioned that these stories will create a core part of WST March 2023. We are open to posters, presentations, demonstrations, remote presentations and more. Our aim is to create a variety of opportunities for our colleagues to engage whether they are on campus or remote.

We want to hear about everything from software you discovered, projects you developed, strategies you implemented, processes you delivered, connections you made that benefitted you and others as well as anything else you want to tell the UCD community about from the last few years.

Tell us about the teams that came together, the problems you solved, why you did it and then show us how.  If it was you, your team or your entire unit that changed for the better, we want to showcase it. If you had to attack the problem in a variety of ways before succeeding, we want you to tell us what worked and what didn’t work.

This is the opportunity to celebrate your story and inspire your peers as part of the WST Celebrating Us event this March.
