COVID-19 Safety Precautions


We want to get to the fun stuff too.  But first, let’s make sure we are safe, because your safety is our priority.  This is what you can expect:

Participants will be required to be fully vaccinated two weeks prior to participating and masks will be required while indoors.

  •  We will follow the city of Washington DC guidelines and recommendations, and the GWU institutional guidelines for their campus.

  • Visitors to the GWU campus will be required to register with the university at and complete a visitor COVID-19 symptom screening form, after completing they will be emailed a registration confirmation.

  • The confirmation will be provided upon check-in to the conference event and to enter GWU facilities.

Additional precautions:

  •  Our tea breaks, welcome reception and networking lunch will have indoor and outdoor options for seating.

  • Note: The following is encouraged instead of handshaking: waving,  elbow bumps, fist bumps, thumbs up (cart wheels or hand stands optional).  WiBE members are encouraged to practice their secret handshake prior to arrival.  (Just kidding, there is no handshake.  Maybe.  But if there was.  It would be secret).

Note that guidelines may change between now and our conference date in June.  Any changes will be communicated by participants via email.
