Sounds like a great meeting! I was at a recent Keystone meeting on human genomics where the excellent diversity and inclusion session was also during the lunch/skiing break. It's great that this issue is being discussed, but it should be part of the main programme! 

Completely agreed! The success of the diversity session in this meeting is good proof of the need of placing them in a more suitable time slot. I hope the organisers of the next edition of the meeting have noted that down... And happy to hear that this is happening in conferences across different scientific areas!
