Bring one ingredient or a small dish to share with everyone and have good talks with great people! The salad lunch is an informal way to get together and get to know each other better. It’s also a fun metaphor of collaboration: each ingredient brought by each person tastes better when mixed up together.

Amenez un ingrédient ou un petit plat à partager avec tous et menez de bonnes conversations avec des gens exceptionnels! Ce déjeuner est une manière informelle de se rassembler et d’apprendre à se connaître. C’est également une métaphore de la collaboration: chaque ingrédient amené et ajouté à la salade a meilleur goût lorsqu’il est mélangé aux autres.
