What is a Bio card?


The Bio Card allows you to introduce yourself and what makes you tick, and other personal information including your preferred pronouns, nationality, the languages you speak, interests and web-links to other personal websites or social media channels. You can also manage the answers you submit for equity, diversity and inclusion questionnaires as well. 





How to create your Bio


Step 1: Add your profile picture. 


Step 2: Fill out your details (Name, Location, Pronouns, Current Job Title, Current Company and Bio summary).


Step 3: Add tags to provide a quick overview of your nationality, any languages you speak, interests and hobbies. 


Step 4: You can add links to your social media website, personal websites or portfolios .


Step 5: Create your own unique, personal URL that links to your Vizzy profile.


Step 6: If you want to bring your bio to life with a cover video it must be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo. You can copy and paste the video link into the video link entry field in your bio. You are not able to upload a video file directly onto your Vizzy profile - it must be hosted on YouTube or Vimeo.


Step: 7: Edit the information you submit to EDI questionnaires.
