Types of breakout sessions

There will be two types of breakout sessions allowing you to participate in peer-to-peer problem solving, and hear from industry changemakers and first-movers.

Solution Rooms: These sessions are designed to foster peer-to-peer problem solving and community building. Here, we’ll tackle challenges and face change head-on alongside peers, subject matter experts and talent practitioners.

Each Solution Room will be offered on both days - once on Tuesday and an encore session on Wednesday.
