About the Session

This session will be a time of welcoming everyone back as we gradually reemerge into the in-person world of supporting others. Let’s take time to reflect on, honor, and celebrate our diversity and resilience which brings about a greater sense of unity in the work we are doing to support others. We will look at what we have learned about ourselves and those we support, what we might retain from the virtual world, and where we want to go next with our new knowledge gained. We will highlight ways we have stretched and experienced significant growth beyond our comfort zones.
