VIRTUAL CONFERENCE 101
The Women Making Waves Conference will be bringing four jam-packed days of content to you this year. Whether that is at home or in an office, offering the conference online allows us to continue providing the WMW sessions to a wider scope of attendees. We're excited to bring you more content than ever at a lower price while keeping you safe at home.

Making Waves Virtually - Where Do I Start?
What Do Tickets and Passes Look Like for 2021?
This year, we're offering a single ALL ACCESS PASS - all workshops, screenings, webinars, and networking sessions are included in a single ticket price.
48 hours before the launch of the conference, you will receive your Passholder Program, containing all of the links and sign-in information you need to successfully navigate conferencing in the virtual world!
To purchase a #WMW2021 ALL ACCESS PASS and/or apply for a bursary to attend the conference, head to the Registration tab for further details.
Panel Discussion, Workshops, Spotlight Conversations and More! How do I log on to the webinars?
All of the sessions for this years' WMW conference will be held on Zoom.
There will be a mix of meetings and webinars depending on what type of session is being held. All of the necessary Zoom links and passwords will be included in your Passholder Program sent prior to the conference.
You will be registered to each session via the email address you used when purchasing your pass. You must have an email address registered with us to attend the Zoom session.
Where Will I Watch the Film Screenings?
We have three exciting screenings that will be shown on the Eventive platform for the optimal viewing experience. If you are unfamiliar with Eventive, don't worry! We're here to help.
To get started, you will need to create an account with Eventive (at no additional cost to you). Below are two videos on how to create an account and how Eventive works. Stay tuned for our Passholder Program for more details the week of Women Making Waves!
We've missed networking at conferences and events in 2020, and we know that connection and conversation are a favourite part of Women Making Waves every year.
That's why we've connected with Remo to provide you with that simulated networking experience! With Remo you're able to move freely around the "room" and network like you would at any conference. You can jump from table to table, see other attendee's virtual business cards, and connect with one another. To see more information about Remo as an attendee and what networking this year will look like, see below for more information!
Will the Conference Be Accessible?
Recognizing that our audiences have diverse needs when it comes to accessibility, the team at WIFT-AT is doing everything we can to ensure #WMW2021 is available to all who wish to attend. Live closed captioning will be provided for all sessions, as well as ASL interpretation for all webinars.
If you have additional accessibility requirements, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
