Pop-up Podium

Accessibility links

The Pop-Up Podium is a supportive place where you can share ideas and projects. In the Pop-Up Podium, talks are short and to the point (5-10 minutes only). The speaking environment is participant-led, informal and safe. Perhaps you have an idea that is still baking, and you want some feedback. Maybe you have a project you want to publicise or are seeking collaborators for. Maybe there is an issue you feel strongly about that you want to advocate for and promote. Perhaps you have a publisher pitch for a book concept and want to test it on a supportive audience. Or, you might want to share your research via a lightning talk, elevator pitch or PechaKucha presentation. You may just like to take five minutes to tell a story from your life or to describe the shiFt you want to make happen. Or you might see something in our Inspiration Gallery that prompts something you'd like to share.

In the Pop-Up Podium you will experience camaraderie and championing. We have some fun posters you can download, print and use to cheer each other on. Your time in the Pop-Up Podium might just kickstart the conversation that solves the problem you were grappling with, expose you to an idea that you can grow, or alert you to an interesting project or colleague.

The Pop-Up Podium occurs in this occur in this Zoom Meeting Room during the final two hours of each themed segment. In this Zoom Meeting Room, there will be a conference host present in the room for the programmed two hours to assist and guide as needed. She will also keep time so that everyone who wants to speak has a turn. Go to the Facebook Group to continue conversations beyond the two hours programmed in each theme segment.
