2020 has been a year for the books. It is providing leaders with an opportunity to make impactful changes while also creating enormous pressure to balance work/life priorities and maintain morale. This “Changemaker Conversation” explores leadership during unprecedented times with a focus on the future. The Conversation will touch on guiding employees and business during a pandemic while implementing and accepting change that meets the needs of companies, communities, and employees.
