2020 Dirigo Leadership Conference

Join Us Virtually on December 5th!

We understand the profound challenges that COVID-19 has imposed upon academia and the world. Innovating new ways of learning, adapting to a new way of living, and exploring new ways of growing are at the forefront of this unprecedented time. Compassionate leaders, courageous pioneers, and powerful game changers are what we need most. To accommodate this demand, we have decided to transform the Dirigo Leadership Conference into a completely virtual leadership experience so that there are minimal barriers impeding your ability to learn and grow. That’s right, you can join us virtually from the comfort of your own home!

The Details: 

The Dirigo Leadership Conference will be held virtually over Zoom on Saturday, December 5th, 2020 from 9:30AM to 1:00PM. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to choose from a myriad of presentations and attend informative lectures geared towards their developmental interests. The presentation schedule can be found below: 

Each presentation will be around 50 minutes in length and conducted via a separate Zoom session to allow the presenters to take full advantage of Zoom’s capabilities. We will first congregate in the “Main Session” for a brief introductory meeting. Attendees will then pick which presentations they are interested in attending from a master schedule, which will include each presentation’s Zoom link.
