Webinar: How to Master Your Silos

We all talk about de-silo-ing in an organization – but what does it really take to break down those barriers? This webinar continues the conversation from our successful session at the CSE 2022 Annual Meeting about breaking down barriers within organizations. Attendees will hear about the challenges involved in building connections between departments and some examples of projects and strategies that have allowed members in formerly walled-off departments of a company come together to benefit their organizations and those their organization serves. There will be plenty of time dedicated to Q&A so that attendees can offer their own views and ask questions of the panelists.
