HDR/ECR Hangouts

Join us online every second Wednesday of the month for a chance to chat and connect with a group of your peers in a safe and friendly setting. We have several guest speakers this year on topics requested by the cohort, so come along to hear them speak and ply them with questions.

Hangouts run from 3pm – 4:30pm (AEST)
