Intro : Kickoff

The kickoff session of the webinar series featured Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who dialed in live to speak on workplace re-entry and efforts to control the virus. The session also included a conversation with each CEO of the partner organizations, encompassing transitions in the nonprofit workplace, engaging the community, reaching members and beyond. Since many organizations are aiming to return to in-office work, legal guidance on developing a re-entry plan is included.
