The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth works in cooperation with the online videoconferencing platform, Nepris, in order to provide virtual speakers on a variety of issues relevant to the state of the world today. Nepris connects teachers and students with the right industry experts, virtually without having to spend much planning time or leaving the classroom while providing an effective way for companies to extend education outreach and create equity of access.

In order for educators to interact live with speakers, they must purchase a Nepris membership. However, first-time users may participate in one session free provided by an industry expert and request one session on any topic free.

All virtual sessions provided by the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth are recorded and posted online for any educator to access free. To watch past recorded sessions, you do not need to purchase a Nepris membership.
