Due to current health guidelines, the UVA Forward conference has been postponed again. However, we continue to  provide professional development opportunities via this website.

The UVAForward Planning Committee worked diligently last year to gather resources for the UVA Community to help us stay sharp professionally and also aid us in transitioning to the new world of remote work we are navigating as a result of this crisis.  We are excited to bring you this curated content to inspire and grow you professionally.  Content is added periodically, so please check back often!

We were also excited to host virtual sessions last summer that provided a forum to interact with colleagues while discussing interesting topics.

We appreciate the interest of our attendees and the enthusiasm of our presenters and look forward to seeing you at a future conference.  

Linda Leshowitz and April Torres

Planning Committee Co-chairs

Many thanks to the Planning Committee Team Members:

Justina Duncan, Anna Hudson, Grier McCain, Anita Vannucci, Nick Williams
