2019 Summit Schedule

We are pleased to present a full day of engaging activities, lunchtime networking round-tables and workshop sessions and a summit wide skillshare for this year’s summit attendees. Since we cannot all go to every session, we strongly encourage cohorts to review the sessions in advance and split up to attend as many sessions as possible to get the most out of the summit.
