What To Expect from WHSummit 2020

The series is designed by Sched for attendees to personalize their own Summit experience. We’re creating a conversational atmosphere with lots of breathing room for attendees to connect through “Ask Me Anythings” with speakers, Q&A chats, live polls and SLACK channels to continue conversations beyond the Summit. Talks and workshops are designed to catalyze audience engagement with subject matter experts, critical dialogue on complex issues, and networking. connections.

Who’s it for?

  • Anyone seeking evidence-driven health knowledge and participating in solution-building.
  • Leaders who are creating positive impacts in health, healthcare, communications, policy, and technology 
  • We value inclusivity and have created a scholarship fund through ‘pay-it-forward’ donations so that people who may not be able to attend due to financial barriers are able to access and participate in Summit events.
  • We encourage anyone experiencing a barrier to access our in-person or virtual experiences to contact us ahead of time, so that we may find a way to accommodate your participation 

Our commitment to

equity, diversity, and inclusion

In a committment to anti-racism and anti-hate, we will only provide events and foster partnerships that respect and make possible the diversity of human experience with knowledge exchanged in ways that are accessible and inclusive for everyone.  We will continue to ensure a balance of genders and gender expression in speakers, with the perspectives of people historically marginalized respectfully represented. We are learning and working to create a space, image and opportunities for health and wellness that is inclusive, right from the start, bringing diverse perspectives into the Summit team to advise and intentionally select speakers and topics with diverse perspectives in health and wellness.
