Converse and Convene: COVID-19 Pilot

October 9, 2020

Grab your favorite morning beverage, turn on your camera and come have an open, candid hour-long conversation about how COVID-19 is impacting you, your work, and anything and everything in between. This virtual networking webinar will be moderated by 2 SHEA Member Experts who will lead and facilitate discussion and collaboration.  This webinar will host virtual breakout groups allowing all to be fully engaged with others experiencing similar issues and challenges.  Participants will be able to share challenges and lessons learned from the frontlines. Individuals will gain greater insights not only with their breakout groups but with a larger group discussion directly following and lead by the moderators. This forum will not be recorded and is meant to be an open conversation. Space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis, so be sure to register before all spots are filled!

Our very first Converse and Convene: COVID-19 will focus on questions surrounding testing and re-opening certain services safely. This event is open to SHEA members only at this time.
