NOTE: This online-only event will utilize the video platform Zoom. Installation instructions are below.

Things are pretty rough right now, so WiT organizers got our heads together and thought about how we could help. For many, this is your first time working remotely, or working remotely so consistently. And it's an adjustment!

To help us all cope - whether we have kids or a partner at home, are struggling with the isolation, or just want advice for setting up a workspace - WiT has assembled a panel of seasoned remote workers from different backgrounds.

Afterwards, we'll be splitting up into separate Zoom rooms for coordinated group discussion (see more below!).
