Why Are We Excited About “Live Online” Events

While we are sad that we won’t be able to engage with our participants in person, we are using the socially-distanced virtual environment to provide a diverse platform where we can also preserve the best elements from physical live events. Without the schedule constraints and logistical challenges of a physical event, we are now able to offer a more accommodative schedule for participants and give them ample opportunities to network with our program partners and business reps. 

The live online events will help us create an even more diverse event, and provide opportunities for participants in untapped sources to showcase their skills!
