WiNS Learning and Development is hosting a lunch and learn event to discuss technician development and career pathways. Please see attached flyer for details and contact Makayla Edwards with any questions. This event will focus on understanding the foundation of job classification and position requirements, pathways to career development for technicians, and technical training opportunities. Although this event mainly focuses on technician career development, all staff are encouraged to attend – especially group leaders and other supervisor roles.

Brian Weston will also introduce a new conceptual collaborative cohort program with Tennessee Tech University to allow staff to earn their Bachelor of Science Engineering Technology degree at ORNL.

The moderator and speakers encourage participant questions and conversation throughout the event. To best address questions/concerns on career development, please email Makayla with any questions you may have ahead of time and feel free to bring them up during the event as they come.
