Open Space is back for the Online Conference this year, with a twist!

A beloved part of our conference experience, Open Space, is where we turn the programming over to YOU. 

For Open Space, anyone is welcome to sign up to host a conversation on any topic that you'd like to explore with other conference participants.

Those who apply to host a session will be informed of acceptance via email, on a rolling basis until Friday, October 30th.

Please note that there are only 12 sessions available across 3 days and this year's sessions will be held virtually Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm (PST) following the conference keynote presentations. Please note, those that are selected to host an Open Space session will need to be online and logged into the session 30 minutes prior to the session start time and remain in the session after the conclusion to connect with the BDA representative supporting the session time.

Once confirmed, the schedule of session topics will be shared with participants prior to the conference and will be posted online for reference.

If you're not hosting a session, you can take your pick of the conversations others have organized, sticking with one or moving between different conversations that interest you.

So! Do you have a topic you're cultivating? Research you're digging into?

Consider signing up to lead an Open Space Salon Session!

Spaces are limited; sign up today!
