Cross-Department Connections

Create bonds across departments, business units, or functions. Using the Cross-Group Intro type, Donut will set up random conversations between people from different teams. Don’t forget: people will need to self-identify, so be sure to name the cross-group categories (e.g. Team: Sales, Engineering)!
