Virtual Community Conversations

While the global pandemic of 2020 interrupted our plans to host in-person mutuality meals and conversations, it didn’t stop the Mission Partners team from bringing our community together, even while we were physically apart.

These conversations were intended to be informal, a time for us to find new ways to stay connected to one another, despite remote working environments. They were an opportunity to exchange tips, resources, and strategies with other social impact professionals, staying focused on what we could control, during the uncontrollable moments of COVID-19. 

Have a listen to any of our past community conversations, or register to join one of our upcoming sessions below.

Check out her blog of the same title to preview some of what will be included in this discussion.

Promoting Equity Through Design

December 10, 2020, 5-6 p.m. ET
