Meet the Leaders
Meet the Leaders (formally Lunch with Leaders)
This is the digital equivalent of the popular Lunch with Leaders event! Students sign up for only one time slot to chat informally with academic and industry leaders around the world. Leaders will begin with an informal 5-minute presentation about themselves, and then answer questions from the student attendees.
Date and time of event: June 2-12.
This event will be held during multiple days. Participants (mostly students) can sign up for specific time slots to meet with a leader. We have prepared 5 or more - separate, smaller events held on multiple days/timezones.
