An incubator of women leaders

Brainstorming for the Next Normal

Registration is closed

Over just a few short months, much has changed. Covid-19 has impacted human life, the economy, the traditional workplace, the healthcare system, the education system, our social lives, the environment and much more.

Change brings opportunity. Join us as we brainstorm what the Next Normal might look like.

  • What industries will rebound quickly and reshape our economy – and what traditional services will never recover?
  • What societal weaknesses have been exposed – and how do we help our companies, governments, and non-profits fix them?
  • What sequence of events will shape the inevitable changes to come? How can we influence this change to see improved opportunities for women, people of color, and other under-served populations? (And, how do we improve our own opportunity for success?)

Here are a few resources to scan to get your minds into brainstorm mode. Each article is about a different topic, but each share today’s impact and consider the mid- to long-term impact. (We won’t specifically discuss them).
