There will be 5 workshop tracks at the Summit:
1) Rights, Power and Justice,
2) Building Leadership Skills,
3) Policy and Advocacy,
4) Media & Strategic Communications and
5) Advancing the HIV Research, Care, and Prevention Agenda.

Descriptions for session tracks:

1. Policy & Advocacy: Sessions in the Policy and Advocacy track will examine or discuss timely policy and/or advocacy trends relevant to women with HIV and provide participants with tools to take action at the local, state and/or federal level.

2. Effective Leadership Skills: Sessions in the Leadership Skills track will focus on developing specific skills that support leadership by women with HIV, including self-care for leaders.

3. Rights, Power & Justice: Sessions in the Rights, Power & Justice track will focus on building critical consciousness and/or ability to use a human rights/social justice framework in advocacy. We are especially interested in sessions that intentionally hold a power, race, gender and/or class analysis and which advance our collective ability to be accountable and strategic as a movement-building organization. Sessions in this track may focus on particular rights and justice issues that disproportionately impact communities most affected by HIV.

4. Media & Strategic Communications: Sessions in the Media and Strategic Communications track will focus on building media and communications capacity of participants to advocate, organize and/or mobilize on policy issues through effective print, online and/or broadcast media, and/or social media strategies.

5. Advancing HIV Research, Care, and Prevention Agenda: Sessions in the Advancing HIV Research, Care, and Prevention Agenda track will focus on building our ability to advocate for innovative and timely research and service delivery that works for our communities.
