This is WID’s first virtual symposium. Here’s what you need to know:
This year’s online symposium is hosted from the WID website, on Zoom, and on Congregate. Scroll below for some additional helpful information and some tips and tricks. To get access to the online sessions, you’ll need a password — check your email for everything you need to log in.
WE HAVE A FEW REQUESTS FOR YOU:
- Do your best to “arrive” on time for your scheduled sessions. If you need help, reach out and we’ll get you pointed in the right direction. Also note that all listed times are in the Central time zone; plan accordingly!
- Bring your best virtual meeting etiquette. Stay muted when appropriate, use Zoom tools for only WID-centric activities, and respect your fellow attendees, presenters, and hosts.
- Engage. Attend as much of the symposium as you can, and make sure that if you’re scheduled to present a poster or talk, you’re prepared and on time.
- Try out the virtual tools ahead of time. Everything will run a little smoother if you’re familiar with our online environments. You can practice on Zoom and jump into the poster session and break room early to make sure you know your way around.
