The idea is to:
1.determine region-specific challenges in maintaining diversity and combating bias,
2.identify solutions that have been implemented or are in the process of being implemented,
3.enable regions to learn from the success-stories as well as mistakes that others have made so that the community can assist each other to move forward as a global initiative,
4.provide a forum for participation, with the speakers/chairperson moderating the discussion.

16:00: Casual networking
