Why a Virtual Conference?

Value and Convenience!

We know that in-person conferences can be great – but they can also be costly in terms of time and finances. But that is the only way to build skills and networks, right? No way! Virtual conferences are becoming more and more popular because they fit with our lifestyles and professional schedules. With Elevate, you will receive the same benefits of an in-person conference, all from the comfort of your own home, office, coffee shop, or wherever you may be! You don't even need to take off work, if that isn’t an option. All sessions and resources are available when you are available. You also will have plenty of ways to connect with others who have similar interests through chat rooms, the Equity Expo, and social media. Wondering how the value matches up to an in-person conference? See for yourself…
