Protecting our communities against COVID-19: A conversation with Dr. Lane Rolling
This spring and fall, we sent surveys to the G4GC network to learn more about how COVID-19 is impacting the offices and work spaces of organizations leading the work to support girls of color and gender expansive youth of color. We heard your questions and concerns. In response, we are hosting this webinar as an opportunity to hear from an expert, directly ask him questions, and share best practices and protocols with each other.
On Wednesday, November 18, at 2pm ET/ 1pm CT / 11am PT, join G4GC Executive Director Monique W. Morris, Ed.D. as she leads a 90-minute discussion with infectious disease specialist and COVID-19 Health Care Task Force of the Congressional Black Caucus member, Dr. Lane Rolling, on how organizations can work to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their workplaces and communities.
On the webinar, we’ll also share more on the COVID-19 Office and Workspace Survey responses, including that while 61 percent of organizational respondents plan to return to a office space when COVID-19 restrictions are eased, only 43 percent intend to return to their current office space, 20 percent do not plan to return to their existing office, and 37 percent remain unsure. In the survey, organizations in our G4GC network expressed the need for added support due to COVID-19 for personal protective equipment, cleaning supplies, technology, legal resources to negotiate terms of a lease, as well as support for mental health, childcare, and a desire to share best practices and resources within the G4GC network.
This event is free and open to the full G4GC community. Those attending will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Rolling their own questions about COVID-19 safety. We hope to see you on November 18!
