Change! - Six Months On

Cindy and Mary’s talks in the Change session from Society Street virtual was one many of our attendees found inspiring: it came at a time when many were floundering. Their session gave both reassurance and hope. We wanted to revisit some of the themes we covered in March, and ask Cindy and Mary to review where we are six months on How has COVID-19 developed our thinking? How are we adapting to the changes, and what skills do we need to develop and value to bring our organizations safely through the turbulent times ahead? What has been surprising about the last six months, and what opportunities do we see for the future?

Society Street brings together leaders and future leaders of professional and academic societies to look holistically at their organizations, and to foster discussion, learning, and the sharing of insights and experiences of transforming learned societies into modern and relevant organizations. COVID-19 put a temporary stop to in-person conferences – and instead, Society Street implemented a program of webinars. Thanks to our sponsors, we are able to offer these 1-hour webinars at no cost to attendees.
