The workshop is scheduled for four days at the end of January and beginning of February. To enable everyone to participate at a time that is convenient, we have provided two two-hour options (9–11 a.m. ET and 3–5 p.m. ET) for each day. There will be groups meeting on the day’s topics at both of those times, and participants may join one or both of those timeslots each day.
Our expected outcomes for the workshop include (1) completion of a draft five-year strategic plan, (2) establishment of a leadership structure with terms of reference for leadership roles, and (3) renewed excitement surrounding the event. We are beginning with a strategic plan from the current timeframe (2019–2021).
We are still working on the schedule, but it will likely look similar to this:
Jan 26: Introductions; Workshop Goals; Workshop Schedule; WeDigBio Mission, Vision, and Values
Jan 28: WeDigBio Environmental Scan; WeDigBio Sustainability; WeDigBio Goals and Objectives
Feb 2: WeDigBio Leadership Structure, including Working Groups
Feb 4: Advancing Towards WeDigBio 2021 Objectives
