Candid Convene 2022 was met with much anticipation, curiosity, excitement, and to be frank, trepidation. In the end, the gathering was a great opportunity to reconnect and collaborate. We're already looking forward to 2023.
The importance of boundaries had been casually and consistently brought up throughout planning. We encouraged total program attendance, but was not mandatory. The message was clear: it was ok to decompress instead of, say, joining a dinner.
Our top priority was to ensure our team’s continued health and safety. For that reason, Candid required in-person gathering participants to be fully vaccinated, and had a rigorous yet realistic COVID protocols.
We put out a call for “staff-led” programming, in which staff members could host a session, activity, or dinner. This allowed staff to share their professional and personal passions to deepen connections beyond our roles within Candid.
