Navigate

Navigate is a new, year-long engagement platform created to deliver ongoing education to our members in place of the Annual Conference which was canceled due to COVID-19. This program will provide a forum for discussion around key topics impacting our industry.

Registration
Education and PERSPECTIVES sessions are free to attend, but registration is required as space is limited. We will send out notifications to registered individuals as soon as session dates are confirmed. Each session will be recorded and archived on this page for future viewing. Sessions annotated with an asterisk will include a collaborative idea exchange session.

SEPTEMBER 
Setting the Course, Expanding the Network
Speaker - Tanya Menon, Associate Professor, Ohio State University Fisher College of Business
Tanya Menon is fascinated that in a time when we can instantaneously connect with nearly the whole world, we often instead filter our relationships even more narrowly. As such, we get stuck in dead ends, missing out on new people, ideas and opportunities. Menon and her collaborators have studied the mundane feelings and innocuous daily habits that cause people to remain in their social comfort zone and produce this polarization to explore ways that we can be more intentional about navigating the social world. Mennon’s goal is to create new ways for people to connect with each other so they can live richer, more creative lives.
