As creatives, we're trained to solve problems with "out of the box" solutions that make the best of the situations that we're given. When 2020 forced us all home, and forced us all to reconfigure the status quo of our day to day, the leaders featured in this panel discussion took on the challenge like they would any other. Each of their journeys is unique, and each of them found out things about themselves and the importance of their community throughout the process. Join us as we have a conversation with these folks about what changed and what didn't in the last few years.
Lunch will be provided.
