The UVA Forward 2020 conference has been postponed till next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic - but that doesn't mean we won't be providing professional development opportunities.

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

We are also excited to host virtual sessions this summer that will provide a forum to interact with your colleagues while discussing interesting topics.

We appreciate the interest of our attendees and the enthusiasm of our presenters and look forward to seeing you in person at our 2021 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
