AWI Annual Conference Speaker Proposals Due Wednesday, April 15!

AWI is accepting proposals for presentations for the 2020 AWI Annual Conference that will be held in Burlingame, CA from November 5th-7th, 2020.

Are you interested in sharing your expertise, connecting with your peers, and contributing to the advancement of the quality and integrity of workplace investigations? AWI encourages professionals who wish to share their knowledge and expertise in the field of workplace investigations to submit a proposal to speak at the 2020 AWI Annual Conference. AWI membership is not required but sessions must be educational for attendees, not promotional for presenters’ services.

Subject matter experts from fields that inform workplace investigations are encouraged to submit proposals. Popular topic ideas include updates on legal developments, global investigations, investigation processes and protocols, the future of investigations and innovation, ethics, report writing, and other current trends or changes related to investigations.
