Dedicated Networking Time
11:30 AM, Friday 2 Oct 2020 PDT (2 hours)
During this year’s digital Getting Real, we are introducing two dedicated virtual networking sessions. Take advantage of this block of time to connect with all attendees Each 1:1 and breakout space has its own chat stream, allowing text communication in the chat in addition to audio and video. Our virtual event platform, Hopin, allows you to set up individual meetings (click someone’s name to chat to them directly, or have the option to invite them to a video call), develop self-created breakout rooms with multiple attendees (on Friday and Saturday, 10/2 and 10/3 ONLY), or use Hopin’s networking feature (you’ll find it under “1:1s” on the left side of your screen) to meet other attendees at random. Drop into Hopin during this time and network away! Click here for a tutorial on how to utilize Hopin’s randomized Networking feature. Please note that this third option, the randomized Networking feature, does include a text-based chat, but is otherwise inaccessible to d/Deaf and hard of hearing attendees. Choosing to invite a specific individual to a conversation, or to a self-created breakout room, will give you the opportunity to have ASL interpreters attend and support the conversation.
