Dream 2U15: 2Utes Gather in Orlando for Annual Company Meeting
Since 2U’s founding in 2008, we have held a yearly off-site meeting for all employees. Yesterday we arrived in Orlando, Florida, for our eighth annual company meeting, Dream 2U15. The company meeting, held for the second year at Walt Disney World, not only supports our company culture, bringing together 2U employees from around the world to meet and network, but it also drives employee professional development with two days of workshops and presentations across a number of relevant topics.
We kicked off the event with a reunion of friends and coworkers who work in 2U offices across the U.S. and in Hong Kong. Some were catching up after a year apart. Other employees were meeting for the first time, having only interacted over webcam. Our favorite line we overheard was, “It’s so nice to finally meet you in real life! You’re taller than I guessed.” (We often hear similar comments when students in our partner programs meet for the first time.)
We asked two employees to share their experiences firsthand:
