We seek to advance common goals through reasonable and realistic practices, procedures and expectations.

Working from home, working with distractions, and working with greater demands for productivity are all the norm right now. Consciously prioritizing and planning your work can relieve stress, free up more time and help you prioritize and realize your goals.

Join us in conversation, and share what you’ve learned about remote work.

Friday, May 29
3–4 p.m.
