StrategyShare 2020

StrategyShare 2020 was held online in three, live 90-minute sessions September 29 - October 1.

StrategyShare2020 was held scheduled for June. In light of major 2020 events, the event was delayed and the agenda expanded to include topics related to COVID-19 and issues of social injustice. StrategyShare 2020 was presented through a series of three, live 90-minute virtual sessions with content building from one session to the next, including content related related to the Medical Center's Strategic Directions

The virtual format of StrategyShare2020 enabled us to engage our largest, most diverse audience ever. The event was open to all members of the Vanderbilt community. Content for each session is below.
