Interactive Session (60 or 90 min)
Our goal is for attendees to walk away with skills they can use immediately. Interactive sessions should give participants a chance to get hands on experience with whatever skill you are sharing. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own laptops, but we will have some computers available in the workshop rooms for use.
Ignite Success Talks-
The Ignite Success Talks will feature 6 trans-identified speakers giving sharing their stories of success in 15 min with a Powerpoint presentation.
Caucuses gather different individuals and organizations who are involved in aspects of a particular industry or skillset to share resources and perspectives.
