About the Session
"Ideas at Work" are free online conversations open to the public. Advance registration is required.
The session will last for one hour and fifteen minutes, and the Center will facilitate an interview and discussion with our guest via Zoom video chat. Participants will be required to use an online video chat platform in order to recreate the feel of an in-person interview and Q&A. A brief tutorial of the platform will be shared prior to the session.
