This event will take place completely online. The event uses a virtual environment which allows attendees to view plenary panels, workshops and also participate in small-group networking sessions.
Virtual events bring the experience of an in-person conference to your personal computer, so just like an in-person conference, you have the freedom to pick the sessions you attend. But many say that attending the event in its entirety—the fireside chats, plenary panels, breakout panels and workshops as well as the networking sessions —will help you to get the most out of the experience.
The event is over the course of two-days, with three hours each day. Be sure to check the agenda here for event-specific questions.
This event is open to the public. We just ask that you register in advance.
At the conclusion of the event, the sessions and post-event materials will be available on the same platform for at least four months.
Yes! Throughout the live virtual event you are able to connect with all other attendees in numerous ways through the chat function, on the discussion board and in our networking sessions.
For the best experience, we suggest using a desktop or laptop computer and the Chrome internet browser. If you don’t already have Chrome, you can download it for free here.
No, you do not need a webcam.
One week prior to the conference, you will receive an email via the email you used to register for the conference containing all of the instructions on how to access the virtual conference. At that time, you’ll have the option to fill out your profile by adding a picture of yourself, adding information out the “ask me about” section, and linking to your social media accounts. This profile will act as your conference badge during the WLGH Conference 2021, and help other conference attendees connect with you! You should also take a minute to check your preferences and set them to your desired settings.
If you have any issues accessing the link or using the platform during the day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There will also be a virtual help desk to make your experience as smooth as possible!
