Conference Venue: HOTEL UTO KULM | 8143 Uetliberg / Zürich Testimonial Diverse, rich and informative presentations from various speakers. There were many lessons to learn in the field of gender studies. The presentations were very enriching-short and so informative. The presenters knew their areas very well. The virtual platform was very easy, though I have never done a presentation before via webinar, it was great! Virtual networking opportunities were great as the presenters were from various backgrounds, and one can consult them in future collaborations. Gloria Nyambura Kenyatta Interdisciplinary nature of the presentations was interesting. Overall - I enjoyed the conference - the topics were interesting, it was a nice opportunity to network, etc. Shelley Jones I really enjoyed the presentations and the networking in the small breaks in between. Benedicte Fjeldberg It was interesting to hear from other people on their proposal and working paper. Different perspectives and lovely to see different nationalities. The questions posed were interesting and could be taken into account when doing a paper. The ability to easily navigate to a shared screen and no Internet disruption. Also the clarity and the audio was good. I was able to change slides quickly. Salome Grace Thomas Virtual sessions were great because of budget friendliness for those who have difficulty to cover a participation fee and travel costs. Talking about my situation, my main job tasks are not really related to the research, so the employer did not approve covering travel costs, but only a participation fee for a virtual presentation. I had an opportunity to meet with participants from all over the world, which motivated me a lot to work harder with my research. It was very very great to have virtual networking opportunities and I really want you, organizers, to continue this event. Shiho Hansen My favorite virtual feature is the chat function! It's wonderful and useful in connecting with the other conference panelists and participants, even from thousands of miles away. I enjoyed the virtual networking opportunities! I greatly appreciate that I could chat with other panelists (other panelists could shoot me a message too) and encourage each other. Overall, I was delighted with the networking opportunities during this event.
