Apply to present a digital or poster display
 

Poster display example.Submission Requirements: Applications will be accepted until 30 digital and/or poster display applications are accepted for each day of the conference. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Poster or Digital Display Opportunity: At the Toward One Wisconsin conference there will be an opportunity for conference attendees to display and present a digital display or 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.

Digital or Poster Display Purpose: The digital or 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 Thursday and Friday, November 12-13, 2020. It will be necessary to staff the digital or poster display during these break times so attendees can meet you, learn about your project and ask questions. An easel or table will be provided to attendees at no cost.  All presenters will be required to attend the conference and pay the presenter conference registration fee of $100. Your name, organization, display title, and description will be listed in the conference program. The poster size should be no larger than 3 x 4 feet.
