Participants will be split into two groups to maximize finding a common time to work together. The groups will meet every other week and be facilitated by John and Kiersten. During the time between meetings, participants should be meeting with other participants (at least one) via e-mail, QUBES forum, phone call, Zoom meeting, etc. to discuss the topic for the week. You can meet with the same participant each week or talk with different members. Click on the "Members" tool link for a list of participants and the ability to message. Feel free to share contact information if you do not want to communicate via messaging in QUBES. The biweekly 30 minute meetings are an opportunity to report out with others on the discussions you had prior to the meeting.
