Reimagining the Office
and Workplace

Panelists: Maureen Dingus, CAE; Lisa Noon, CAE, RCE; and Patricia Trudeau, SHRM-SCP

COVID has disrupted how we think about work and "going to the office". For some, working virtually has been a great experience, for others not so much. Determining how, when, or even if we should return to in-person presents many issues and challenges; it also provides opportunities to reimagine the office and work life. Hear firsthand accounts of organizations that are addressing these issues and explore the HR considerations that need to be taken into account.

Supporting Mental Health
in the 

Panelists: Ryan Dunn; Christina Lewellen, MBA, CAE; and Stephanie Peters, CAE

A recent Harris Poll found that nearly 78% of adults say that COVID-19 has been a significant source of stress in their lives, while 60% say the number of issues facing America is overwhelming. These high levels of stress and anxiety can be long lasting and often spill into the workplace, challenging us to address the mental well-being of our employees as well as the members we serve. Three association leaders share the initiatives undertaken by organizations to support their teams and members.
