About the Workshop:

At some point in the near future, we will hopefully return to in-person interactions in our social and work lives but face similar or significantly increased challenges as compared to before the COVID-19 outbreak. The goal is to collaborate in considering our shared futures and how to prepare to address the social and environmental challenges that we can start to address now.


Imagine it is September 2020, five months from now. The COVID-19 curve has flattened and is on the decline. People begin to return to work and social activities, and life is beginning to operate at the rate we knew before the pandemic.

Social Impact Webinar Series
This webinar series was designed to engage our social enterprise community during New York's Shelter in Place recommendation. Our intention is to continue to disseminate best practices for the social enterprise sector, as well as discuss the pressing social and environmental challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure vulnerable and marginalized community needs are still addressed. All webinars will be recorded and shared on the center's COVID-19 Relief and Response webpage,
