Session Q&A


Questions can be asked anonymously and will be reviewed by the moderators and answered live or in the Q&A box at the bottom of the screen .


What do I do if I have connection issues?

If you have any issues connecting, first try to close out of Zoom and rejoin the session. If that doesn’t help, you can take a look at Zoom’s Troubleshooting page, their FAQs list, or search their online Help Center.
