Secret Sessions opportunities for Equalithon participants, mentors and organizers to talk to inspiring and influencing people.

The format of these sessions is quite open. We envision them as structured in 2 parts:

  • in the first part, the guest can present her/him/zerself and talk about a topic that may inspire us - career, learning, adventure, life, etc.

  • in the second part, we can all ask questions about various topics ranging from personal experiences to professional issues in relation with our invitee’s expertise, or related to Equalithon challenges.
