Afternoon Session

Round Table Discussions

Download Round Table Discussions Listing (pdf)

Do you have a great idea to share or a burning question you want answered?  The Defense Wide Community’s Service Day (DW Day) has a great forum to help you do that.

Come talk to an expert!

We have a great group of experts from across the Department, ready to talk! 

Forty of the most knowledgeable people in the Department of Defense will lead you through a discussion of some of the hottest, most timely issues.  They will talk with you, answer your questions, and, just maybe, solve the mysteries you have wondered about, but didn't know who to ask.  

(Some of our topics are similar to the full-blown workshops offered during the PDI – But in the Round Table Discussions, you will talk directly to the expert in a small group of 10.  These are not repeats of the seminars.) We offer each topic three times and you select which Round Table to attend.
