Speakers can propose to present in a variety of exciting formats. Session formats are designed create an engaging experience for attendees.

Activation Lab
An engaging session focused on activating a foundational effort for AAP, DEI or Pay Equity. Unlike traditional sessions where attendees passively listen, these sessions focus on attendee participation.
A masterclass is a specialized teaching session aimed at providing advanced instruction and insights to participants who typically already have a foundational knowledge of AAP, DEI or Pay Equity.

Unlike formal presentations or lectures, fireside chats are designed to be more relaxed and conversational. Chats aim to reveal more insights, stories, and experiences from speakers.
