Congress is the fourth conference I have attended this season and being here at the booth has made me think about the importance of the spaces that conferences create.
Just like our KMb events, conferences provide spaces outside our day to day life to come together to share ideas, knowledge and expertise. They offer us a chance to get to know new people and reconnect with old friends.
For me, it has been a great way to meet new people interested in knowledge mobilization and a chance to spend time with some folks I don’t often see, like our RIR colleagues, and even colleagues at York that I don’t see as much as I would like.
It has also been an opportunity to share updates on our work at York and within the RIR network and to learn about knowledge mobilization efforts from across the country. I have welcomed the time to learn from others, reflect on our practice, and gather ideas.
