NextGen Super Network Operations  COVID-19  Members culture  Leadership  Innovation

As we embrace our new normal in our professional lives, it has become essential to acknowledge and embrace a more well-rounded idea of home and work. A working lifestyle that is prepared to meet the myriad of challenges that await, from a mental and collaborative standpoint.

In our first national YSN webinar for 2021, our speakers will provide a retrospective on the last 12 months – what has our collective experience taught us about our capacity to be resilient – and offer a look into the future as we navigate the ideal set-ups, appropriate support structures and tools needed to thrive in the post-COVID-19 workspace.
