Focusing on ADR-related developments and current issues, the ADR Office serves as the host and coordinator of the Interagency ADR Working Group's ADR Lunchtime Series. These quarterly programs feature speakers who are experts in their fields and garner viewers from all over the country. Presented via WebEx and telephonically, viewers can submit questions for the speaker to answer in real-time, and organizations across the DOE complex often host a local event where individuals can gather to view each presentation.
The audience consists of DOE employees and contractors, other federal and state employees, ADR practitioners in domestic and international private practice, and members of the public at-large.
The ADR Lunchtime Series is organized by the Interagency ADR Working Group (IADRWG), of which the ADR Office staff are longtime members. IADRWG advances the use of ADR in the Federal government through coordinating multi-agency initiatives, promoting best practices and programs, and disseminating policy and guidance.
