Organization and dissemination of ”la Caixa” Foundation Fellowships Virtual Meetups
Since April 2021, we have been working on the ”la Caixa” Foundation Fellowship Virtual Meetups. These spaces for conversation and networking were created during the pandemic to keep the community of more than 5,400 ”la Caixa” Foundation fellows active. Although face-to-face meetings have now resumed, these virtual meetings continue their course, since they offer a unique opportunity for fellows who live in different cities, or even on different continents, to reconnect, as well as to share experiences and ideas on a subject. and from a professional perspective.
At UbiK we take care of the planning, organization, dissemination and moderation of these meetings, which have two modalities:
- Cohort meetings: with the participation of fellows from a specific call to give them the opportunity to get back in touch and update their colleagues on their professional careers, years after their fellowship.
- Thematic meetings: to discuss a certain current issue with expert fellows from the sector. In this modality, we also prepare the dissemination of the main conclusions gathered during the debate in multimedia formats, such as this video that we made after a meeting on climate change.
These virtual meetings have been very well received by this talented community, and we must recognize that for us they are much more than work: they are the privilege of sharing small committee conversations around issues of great interest to everyone. With their brilliant minds, the ”la Caixa” Foundation fellows contribute their experiences in local and international organizations as well as from the projects and companies that they themselves lead.
