Each week will center on a key topic as participants are invited to share their own experience & learn from others. There is no prepared content for these informal sessions and they will not be recorded. Attendees should join ready to discuss the topic. To participate, login with your UVA Zoom account before clicking the meeting link (found in emails from the GWL & on the calendar). Open the chat window to receive/share links and the event survey. Discussion usually include audio, video, and limited use of chat. Participants will be muted upon entry but unmute when speaking in the discussion. If there are many participants in a given week, we may use breakout rooms to better facilitate discussion. Participants in these discussions should be UVA Engineering graduate students and follow all UVA codes of conduct and policies. Participants are expected to be kind, respectful and considerate in all interactions. While participants are welcome to share strategies they learn in the sessions, no participant is permitted to record the session.
