Claris Engage Beyond 2021

We had a blast during Claris Engage Beyond 2021, and we hope you did, too!

As Claris Engage Beyond 2021 comes to a conclusion, we’d like to thank all Claris Partners and community members who participated and helped us make our virtual sessions a success. We’d especially like to give a huge shout-out to our presenters who shared Claris insights, development tips, and networking opportunities during the various sessions throughout the past months. Engagement and leadership like yours empower the Claris Community to thrive.

Delivering online sessions – spaced out over a few months – was a new experience for all of us in 2021. Based on the positive feedback received, we’re excited to know that we have the potential to leverage the virtual, staggered format again in the future.
