New Staff Webinars is a recently developed series that invites newly hired ISU Extension and Outreach staff the opportunity to learn more about the topics presented during the 1-day Staff Orientation event held in April and September. Leaders from across the organization will present h for a 50-minute virtual session. During this session, speakers will go into more depth on various topics and answer questions, providing new employees with a clearer understanding of our organization.

Sessions will also be recorded and archived on the professional development webpage. Again, this does NOT replace our bi-annual in-person orientation events. This is a pilot opportunity to provide additional support, and depending on interest and participant response, it will be offered again in 2023.
