Talking Circles are a distinctive feature of our in-person conference, and this year we are taking them online. Talking Circles offer an opportunity to meet other delegate face-to-face, and engage in extended discussion about the issues and concerns they feel are of utmost importance to that segment of the Research Network. Participation is open, encouraged, and supported. In order to incorporate our international delegates, there will be two Talking Circles:
