Housekeeping Notes

The livestream will start at noon EST/ 9 a.m. PST. If the start time has passed, and the session looks like it hasn’t started, please try refreshing your screen.

Not everyone feels comfortable sharing their identity in a session that implies interest in making career changes. While you’ll be asked in the chat to share your name, it does not need to be your given name. Your favorite color, breakfast food, or pet’s name are all options to use. We only ask that whatever name you use, as well as whatever you contribute to the chat itself, follow the ONA Code of Conduct. The moderator will not use names when referencing audience questions in this stream.

This session is being recorded, and the archived video and transcript will be available in the ONA Resource Library in the coming week.
