The goal of this conversation will be to equip participants to network in the new virtual space. We will address how to make meaningful connections, sharpen your ability to self-advocate, and bolster your virtual presence. We’ll also provide an opportunity for attendees to participate in a virtual breakout session to hone networking skills and enhance your virtual presence ahead of this year’s first virtual EWF conference.
