Frequently Asked Questions
Is this only for educators?
No! This virtual summit has been created to meet both personal and professional needs! All of the content will apply to a wide variety of careers, and particularly be powerful for personal reflection and engagement.
Is this free?
The speakers are experts in their field and are dedicated to making sure you get the most of this experience. To have the webinar hosted on GoToWebinar and commit to having an ASL interpreter to ensure more global accessibility, to make sure our speakers devote time to planning, and providing you after-webinar resources, an access code to the webinar is $39. A portion of the proceeds also benefit The Trevor Project and The Bail Project.
For an access code, you may have as many people as you'd like in the room with you! Also, there are discounts available for non-profit organizations and teachers. Codes will be posted on a variety of social media platforms.
If the webinar is cost-prohibitive, please reach out to and inquire about a discount code.
You are welcome to engage in the weeklong discussion on social media without registering for the webinar. Also, if you're in a position to sponsor a scholarship to the webinar for a hopeful participant, please contact email@example.com.
That's quite the discount! Why the price drop?
As a collaborative effort, we recognize the financial impact of COVID-19 on educators, institutions of higher education and K-12 education, organizations, as well as individuals with limited income during these unprecedented times. Aligning to our core value of equity and social justice, access to this webinar is important to us, and we created a price structure that covers only the necessary costs while being affordable and accessible to as many participants as possible.
When is this whole thing happening?
The virtual live workshop is August 3, 2020 at 4pm EST. However, we'll kick off the previous week with Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook discussions, and follow with resources you can use after the event!
