Dear AWS Members, 


We want to inform you that we are pivoting to a virtual meeting for our upcoming AWS 2020 Conference. We did not make this decision lightly. We understand the importance of networking and the energy and excitement that come with attending the meeting, but we have put together a virtual conference that you don’t want to miss! At this time, we felt a virtual meeting would reach more members, even those who seldom have the chance to attend the meeting in person.  


Strength in Diversity rings true, from so many perspectives! Our AWS 2020 Program Planning Committee members have joined hands to create a series of sessions to challenge you, expand your horizons, and grow your practice. Planning is currently underway, and details will be shared as soon as they are finalized. Additionally, we will record our sessions in order to offer on-demand viewing when time demands your attention elsewhere.  


Expand your understanding of intersectional identities, add to your skills in managing implicit bias, and discover how you can impact the diversity of your environment. Take a deep breath, take time for yourself, and know we are all here to support each other!
