Apply to present a poster display

The deadline to submit the poster display application is February 1, 2020.

Poster Display Opportunity: At the Toward One Wisconsin conference there will be an opportunity for conference attendees to display and present a poster during specific times at the conference. Poster displays can:

  • Offer the opportunity to engage with other conference attendees interested in the same subject and application as yourself.
  • Provide an opportunity to strike up a conversation with someone about your poster that may lead to future collaboration.
  • Actively engage you with others in one-on-one conversations in a way that networking alone does not, since by its very nature the poster defines the topic of conversation.
  • Provoke an insightful, impartial discussion of your work by a peer that can often provide ideas for improving your work downstream.

Poster Display Purpose: The poster display should be about a collaborative and innovative project, a best practice, cutting edge research, and/or success stories that relate to the following Tracks:

  • Track I: Increasing Opportunities for Inclusion in Wisconsin’s Workforce
  • Track II: Creating Inclusive Communities in Wisconsin
  • Track III: Cultivating Equity in Education
  • Track IV: Building Health Equity in Wisconsin

Details: The poster display will occur during four different 30 minute break times on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 28-29, 2020. It will be necessary to staff the poster display during these break times so attendees can meet you, learn about your project and ask questions. The display board or easel to post your poster will be provided to attendees at no cost.  All poster display presenters will be required to attend the conference and pay the conference registration fee. Your name, organization, poster display title, and description will be listed in the conference program.

Registration Requirements: Please click on the Poster Display Application to apply to display a poster. Between 30-60 poster displays will be selected based on their relevance to the conference theme. The following information will be required when you register:

  • Title: The title is important to help promote your work. The title should make conference attendees want to come and visit your poster. The title should be short and comprehensive to a broad audience. The title is your equivalent of a newspaper headline—short, sharp, and compelling.
  • Description: The description will describe the nature and intent of the work being presented.  Some questions you might ask when preparing your poster could include: What do you want the person passing by your poster to experience? Engage in a discussion about the content? Learn enough to try to implement your project at their organization? Want to collaborate? The description must be 150 words or less.

Contact Information: Your contact information so details about the poster display can be emailed to you and your name can be listed in the conference program.

Questions: If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sharon Hunter, Conference coordinator, at 715 261 6104 or shunter@uwsa.edu.
