The session will be recorded and later published on our social media.

To ensure the privacy and anonymity of all participants, if there are any questions asked at the end, they will be edited to protect the individual.

This means that any questions asked, whether over voice or in the chat function, will be removed from the final edit and replace with onscreen text questions.

This allows those who could not attend to watch back the recording while safeguarding participants’ identities.
