What is a live virtual workshop?
Turn on your webcam! This program is much more than recorded videos – it’s quite the opposite. The ‘live virtual’ workshops will replicate face-to-face sessions, as if we were together in the same room. We will focus on interaction, using break-out rooms, real-time polls, and conversations.
Check out this 2-minute video for a glimpse into the virtual workshop experience.

“UPEACE creates a dynamic and stimulating online experience. The use of breakout rooms allowed me to have small group exercises with other participants, just as we would do in a normal classroom setting. In just an hour’s session, I was able to truly connect with the group, while learning a practical framework. Overall, this online session was more interactive than most in-person workshops I’ve attended!”
-Zahra Karsan, Speaker, Coach, Founder & CEO of GetZENd
