Google Hangouts worked well for the first two chats, so we will use that platform again. Google has described Hangouts Meet as “a video meeting experience with one goal: make joining meetings effortless.” You can join the meeting using any Google account you may already have.

Here is the link to join the meeting in Google Hangouts.

If you wish to connect using your telephone only, telephone numbers and instructions can be found by clicking here. Note: Telephone numbers are provided by Google – not by ISAAC.  As a result, not every country in the world has its own local dial-in number.

Instructions for how to set up a Google account (if you do not already have one) are available at: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/27441?hl=en

To reduce feedback, head phones are recommended. They aren’t required, but it’s just easier for everyone. Another recommendation is that if you are physically able to mute your microphone, please do so until you’re ready to speak.

Topics

We recognize that some participants need more time to prepare their thoughts for the chat. So here are some general topics we would like to discuss with you on the upcoming chat. You can use the general topics to compose a prepared message. Please remember this chat is a conversation limited to one hour. Keep your message concise as possible, and be ready to have a discussion.

We may not be able to get to everyone’s message in one-hour chat, especially when a topic sparks a good conversation that many people are commenting on. If you having something prepared that we didn’t have time for, please let me know by sending an email to daretolead@isaac-online.org and we’ll make sure you get a chance to speak the next available chat.

Topic 1: Introductions

We are interested in knowing who you are. Share your name, where you’re from, and anything that you would like to say about yourself.

Topic 2: Something interesting to you

We are interested in your thoughts and opinions about one thing you encountered lately that you would like to share with us. It could be a movie you just saw, a book you just read, a project you are currently working on, or a event that just happened in your city or country.

In addition to sharing what that one thing is, please share why that one thing is important to you, or how has it affected you for the better.

Please join us on June 1st!

Best,

Lateef McLeod
ISAAC Vice-President for LEAD
