How do I access my sessions?
Log in to the annual meeting hub
here to access your registered sessions for the day. The sessions you’re signed up for will show on the My Sessions tab and the links to join each of these sessions will be available starting on May 20. These links are unique to you and should not be shared. Additionally, you can view the full agenda for the day on the All Sessions tab.


What platform are the sessions on?

You’ll access your sessions from the annual meeting hub on your My Sessions tab. Each session will be run on Zoom and have a different link associated with it.


What will the sessions be like, logistically?

We are utilizing Zoom “meetings” during this event. Our partner session, keynote sessions, and roundtable sessions will take place as a traditional Zoom “meeting”—when you join, you’ll be placed in a waiting room. Once the waiting room opens, there will be times you’ll be asked to turn on your video and will be able to see other participants, and other moments where those features will be disabled. This will all be based on the session type and needs. 


Are there best practices for these sessions?

Yes. Please make sure that if you are on video, you are mindful of your background and how you are presenting yourself, as these sessions will be recorded. If you have audio controls (partner session and roundtable sessions), please make sure to mute yourself when you are not speaking.


Who else will be at the event?

Members of our Fast Company editorial team, special guest speakers, and Impact Council members will be in attendance. You can view a list of members who have RSVP’d here. 


How will the roundtable sessions work?

We’ll start the session by convening all together. After a short introduction and some housekeeping notes, you’ll be prompted to enter a Zoom breakout room of 7 to 9 members. You’ll discuss your topic with your members until roughly 12:45 p.m. ET, and then you’ll be prompted to leave the breakout room to rejoin the larger group again.


What is my roundtable topic?

Please search your email for the subject line “Important Information: Roundtables and Partner Session” to find your breakout topic. You can view all breakout topics here. You’ll also be able to view your breakout topic in the “My Sessions" tab of the annual meeting hub here when that opens. Fast Company’s editor-in-chief, Stephanie Mehta, hand curated the roundtable breakout groups to make sure there’s a mix of industry expertise and professional experiences to ensure that each conversation is robust and reflects a diversity of perspectives.
