Welcome to... REIMAGINING TOGETHER! About the Collaborative Conference. 2020 has challenged all of us in different ways. It’s also given us reason to experiment with new ways of living, working, collaborating, even being. Thank you for stepping into this moment with us, taking this opportunity to redefine ourselves, rewrite our stories, recreate our futures, and yes, reimagine the possibilities for all of us...together. We can’t wait to learn alongside all of you in person again. Until then, we are excited to connect with all of you virtually for the next two weeks via Zoom. Get familiar with Zoom: • Join a test meeting • Attendee controls (muting/unmuting, hiding/showing Video, chat, non-verbal reaction icons) • Changing the layout on your screen (gallery vs. speaker view, active speaker view, etc.) • Using Virtual Backgrounds—Messy (home) office?

A conversation will follow with nonprofit leaders Fred Brown, President & CEO of The Forbes Funds, and Anne Gingerich, Executive Director of PANO, on how this data is showing up in PA. How to Be Together Apart | Wednesday, October 28, 9:00-10:05 AM As the world shifts to physical distancing during the coronavirus pan- demic, the practical questions about gatherings—”Should we postpone or switch to a virtual event?” — are quickly transforming into spiritual ones—”Is this needed? Who is it for? And who gets to decide?”. In this fireside-chat style conversation with Priya Parker, master facilitator, strategic advisor, acclaimed author of The Art of Gathering, and execu- tive producer/host of the NY Times podcast Together Apart, we’ll un- pack how to invent creative, meaningful ways of being apart to provide comfort, create rituals, and foster togetherness during unpredictable times. All attendees will get a FREE copy of The Art of Gathering! Thanks to our Accessibility Sponsors, both keynotes will be closed captioned! Workshops. 6 Tracks. 37 Speakers. 24 Workshops. 1 Deep Dive.
