Do I have to commit to all days of the program? OR What are the participation requirements?
We strongly encouraged to full participation in each workshop. The BRIGHT programs will build on each day’s learnings throughout the program – while we are less stringent in the virtual delivery of the program for full attendance, we do require a commitment to day one of the BRIGHT framework content.
