Due to increased awareness of COVID-19 and the risk it poses to our participants, family, and friends, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the physical aspects of The Diana Initiative 2020. However, instead of cancelling the conference entirely, we’ve decided to go virtual.

August 21 & 22, 2020
