New for 2022: Introducing the RightsCon studio

As we head into the 11th edition of RightsCon – and our third virtual event – we’re reimagining RightsCon spaces and testing new, exciting ways to experience the program and platform, which is why we’re introducing The RightsCon Studio.

Participants can think of the RightsCon studio as their homebase for RightsCon: start your day (wherever you’re located) with a Rise and Shine welcome from regional voices, watch Program Previews to get a glimpse of what’s coming up, join In Conversation interviews with global leaders across sectors, take action with the coalitions highlighted in Community Voices, and get a recap on what you’ve missed in Program Reviews.

Whether you’re located in Brazil, France, or Myanmar, and joining in your morning, afternoon, or evening of our five days of programming, you can tune into the Studio on the homepage of the RightsCon platform.

Introducing our Studio host: award-winning journalist Melissa Chan
