COVID-19 has disrupted the lives of millions around the world. With staff across Canada, and clients and partners with operations around the world, working collaboratively online is not new to us. That being said, there's always more to learn and this seems like the right time to go to the next level exploring how digital collaboration can help us to remain productive, engaged and mutually supportive. As we learn, we're also preparing a series of tip sheets and webinars to support our colleagues, clients and community partners.
