Countdown to CONVERGE21: The Workshop Edition

With just a week left before this game-changing event, what can you look forward to?

Next week, over a thousand ethics and compliance practitioners will gather virtually for CONVERGE21: The Workshop Edition. This brand-new event format features eight two-hour workshops spread across two days and it’s unlike any other event in compliance. Want to know what sets it apart? Keep reading for the details and a breakdown of each workshop. 

Deep dives on challenging topics

Have you ever attended a conference session that spends 45 minutes on high-level strategy and then ends right as they’re getting to the good part—the actual tactics? We’ve designed this event so that each workshop can get into the weeds on a specific topic that we know is deeply relevant to your compliance program and challenging for your team to tackle.

Actionable takeaways

Speaking of tactics, these workshops are all about doing the work. The experts and practitioners who’ve planned these sessions and will be hosting them are laser-focused on providing you with the tools you need to start transforming your compliance program not after the event ends…but instead, right in the middle of the workshop. By the time you walk away, you’ll have already kicked off the work.


We may be virtual, but that doesn’t mean we can’t collaborate. Throughout The Workshop Edition, participants will work together on worksheets, activities, templates, trivia, and more, using the event chat, polls, collaboration tools, and breakout sessions.


Does the thought of virtual networking—or just networking in general—make you cringe? Thanks to the “Connect” feature of our event platform, we’re taking some of the pain out of traditional networking. When you click on “Connect,” you’ll be randomly paired with another attendee for a three-minute video call. Three minutes! That’s it. You can do anything for three minutes, right?

Plus, you can view your fellow attendees under the “People” tab and schedule video meetings to catch up with up to four people at a time.

CEUs and CLEs

We have applied for CEUs and CLEs, and you will receive credits four to six weeks after the end of the event.
