You may sign up for more than one networking session. To ensure optimal allocation to breakout rooms for networking, we ask that you commit to attend. To promote free discussion, the Chatham House Rule will apply to all networking sessions (i.e., participants are free to share information or views that are discussed during the session, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speakers or of any other participant may be revealed).

Each One-Hour Session Includes:

  • Opening Remarks (5 minutes)

  • Theme Presentation by the selected speaker (15 minutes)
