VWHE Summer 2020 Virtual Workshop Series

Featuring many of the speakers who had been slated to present at our 2020 Annual Spring Conference, this series includes a Keynote and 10 virtual workshops and networking sessions from mid-June through mid-August.  This series is a wonderful way to stay connected and inspired over the summer!  

Our Keynote session, featuring Xusana Davis, Vermont’s first Executive Director of Racial Equity, will close the series in August (date to be determined) and will be followed by virtual networking. Access to the Keynote session will be included with all registrations!
