Virtual Coffees

Join our regular, weekly Virtual Coffees!

#OneTeamGovCanada Virtual Coffee

Connect. Discuss. Inspire.

All across Canada, people are connecting, discussing and inspiring one another to take action to solve some of the issues facing our country today. These groups of people are known around the world as #OneTeamGov – a public sector reform movement that aims to improve public services and change the way we work through practical action. OneTeamGov Canada is the Canadian chapter of OneTeamGov, a passionate, empathetic and inspiring community!

With OneTeamGov meetups popping up around cities across Canada, we wanted to unite these very teams from coast to coast to coast, as well as give everyone in Canada the opportunity to get involved by connecting virtually. The virtual meetup is a digital opportunity for people all around Canada to take part in an open, honest, and safe discussion on topics that interest them!

With COVID19, many people around the world are adopting a new way of working, of living, of connecting with those around them. As such, our team wanted to expand our bi-weekly meetups by creating a daily virtual coffee meetup for us all to practice community while practicing social distancing.

Here’s how the Virtual Coffee meetups will work:

  1. Join us by clicking the Zoom link, here:
    https://us04web.zoom.us/j/683871543?pwd=TEVNalVyN1k5a3BpMEVBcmRVZ3ViUT09
    Once in Zoom, the virtual team will share the daily Lean Coffee Table link where topics can be added for discussion.
  2. Using Lean Coffee Table, each participant will receive three votes to vote on their favourite topics for discussion, which will frame the agenda for discussion. Be sure to have Lean Coffee Table open during the session as the chat function will be used for those who prefer to add comments in text than verbally over Zoom.

Every Monday, the virtual team will welcome Anna Wong who will kick-off the session with a 10-minute mindfulness session to help keep us grounded during these turbulent times.

Feel free to share your experiences, best practices, lessons learned, challenges, inspirations, and innovative ideas. You are at the center of these meetups!

We look forward to connecting virtually,

Aalya, Amanda, Claudia, Rob, Lily, Pamela
