Note: This event will now be held online beginning at 8:30 am and ending at 1 pm. Please register in advance to receive a zoom access code.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances and our rapid embrace of experiencing collective online learning, we are splitting this program into two digestible and interactive pieces. The Morning Sessions will be held as below. The previously organized afternoon sessions (panel and community workshop) will be rescheduled. Our intention is to hold tightly to the times below allowing 10-15 minute breaks between each section of the program. Thank you for understanding and we hope you will join us.
