The Suzanne R. Nagel Lounge Speaker Schedule

Nagel Lounge

Named in honor of the first woman chair of OFC, this lounge is an inclusive networking space that offers attendees the opportunity to hear from leaders in the field, discuss technology and diversity trends, meet colleagues and explore new business opportunities.

Join us for a talk, to chat with others attending OFC, for a cup of coffee or a complimentary headshot that we are offering throughout the exhibit. There will also be a networking reception on Wednesday at 16:00 – directly following a conversation with one of the 2022 General Chairs Jun Shan Wey.

Come back regularly to see updates to the schedule.
