Note that this will be an interactive workshop. We encourage you to keep your video turned on during the session for maximum engagement with your peers and the facilitators. There will also be a break-out room activity, where you will be asked to unmute yourself and share your experiences. We acknowledge the realities of working from home, and understand you might not be able to turn your video on or unmute yourself. Please let us know via a private chat message at the start of the workshop, so that we can bear this in mind during the session.
