July 2020 Virtual Roundtable Forum

Adaption & Possibilities in Challenging Times

With the COVID-19 pandemic ongoing, these are challenging times and organizations need to be exploring how to adapt or transform to meet not only the needs of today, but what the world might look like in the future. But change poses its own challenges. A conversation with Kim Rowe, Community Development Officer with Alberta Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women to explore how organizations could rethink and change. This may include stories of reimagining, sharing a model and ideas, and even some discomfort. Adaptive learning will be needed to change in order to better serve our communities and world.
