Learning Lab | Best Practices for Managing a Remote Team

All of us have had to adapt quickly to remote working, and, as a result, many have adopted new ways of managing or leading teams. During this workshop, we will explore successful practices from organizations that have been remote for years, discuss and learn from our shared experiences, and focus on transitioning from surviving to thriving while in this environment. In addition, we will focus on applying an equity lens to all of our remote practices to ensure they are equitable and inclusive.
