Omega 2017 Highlights

What an amazing conference! The peaceful, rejuvenating, and rustic setting at the Omega Institute offered distinctive opportunities for learning, discussion, networking, reflection, and renewal. From the fireside chats to the 100+ presentations; from the wine and cheese event by the lake to the diverse plenaries. The conference had something for everyone. This page of highlights and resources is for those who were able to attend and those who weren't.
