Are We There Yet? Making Sense of the Options for Resuming Workplace Operations

Tuesday, April 27 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am • Organized By Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership
Online Event


What a year (and more) it’s been! Nonprofits everywhere scrambled to adapt quickly and responsively to address the challenges of the COVID pandemic and all of the challenges it posed, including the imperative for so many to work remotely – and for everyone to adapt to a radically changed work environment and culture, whether it involved remote work or not. The breadth and depth of the dislocations have been exceptional for everyone. And now we’re starting to come out of it! We can go back to our workplaces, and we can resume increasingly active engagement with our clients and constituents. But for those who lead and manage nonprofits, what does “coming out of it” actually mean? How do we get ready? What issues, concerns, and challenges should we prepare to address as we try to make sense of how to safely and productively transition to our “next normal” at work? The April session of MCNL’s Nonprofit Navigation Series will highlight insights from recent reports and studies, as well as invite participants to share what they are learning from their experiences, as we all think about planning, preparing, transitioning, and supporting our people – staff and volunteers and clients, alike – to make our way as we all return to the workplace.
