Take an active role in shaping what it means to be an IT Professional here at UW-Madison. Participate in this small group report out and interactive session led by the UW IT Professionals steering team. We will be revisiting and brainstorming actionable items from our Guidelines, Best Practices and Advice for IT Professionals living document. This document was created in part from feedback gathered at the “What it Means to be an IT Professional at UW-Madison” held at the November 2016 IT Policy Forum.
