But first… coffee. There’s a coffee station available in the expo hall, provided by Sonic, near booth #1609.
If you didn’t have time to make your way over yesterday, bring your coffee to the Professional Headshot Studio, which will be open today until 12:00 pm. Take your place in line, sign-in with your name and email, and then prepare to dazzle with your best smile.

Unconscious biases are mental associations without intent, control, or awareness. By focusing on developing a conscious awareness, we can reassess the way we behave, and make equitable decisions for young stakeholders.
