Webinar Schedule and Participant Guide

Webinar Dates

Starting on Mon Jan 13, 2020 from 6:30 - 8pm Eastern, we will have a live weekly webinar each week for 6 weeks, ending on Feb 17, 2020. Please mark these dates and times in your calendar! If you miss the live webinars, the recordings will be posted in the course afterward.

To access the webinars, you will simply need to click on the webinar join link that is posted in each week of the course. This link only works on the appointed day and time for that webinar, so while you can try clicking it sooner, it won't open the webinar meeting for you. You may also join our webinars from a mobile device by installing the Zoom app. Then, along with the webinar join link each week, we'll post the meeting ID. This is a 9-digit number you would need to enter in your Zoom app to join the live session with us.
