Brown Bag Sessions
The Brown Bag Session lunch format (duration 60 - 90 minutes) offers an exchange and discussion on career-relevant topics such as funding, mentoring, networking, job interviews, entrepreneurship, and many more. In this format, we are closely working together with other departments within HMGU (e.g. HR development, Project Funding).
The original concept of brown bag lunches referred to the brown paper sacks that employees might pack for their lunch at work.
