How Joy Works: In general, Joy is able to consider presentations and events that include reasonable travel expenses and payment of a speaking fee. These expenses and fees vary depending on a number of a factors, such as time-sensitivity, location, and the non-profit/for profit status and nature of the event or meeting. Joy is also able to present remotely via Skype and other platforms, and finds this method to be powerful, practical and beneficial to the collective carbon footprint.  Joy currently presents to law schools and most colleges and universities free of charge if presenting remotely or in person in the Eastern New York region.
