Over the past month(s), shutdowns have caused our institutions to rethink and redesign the ways in which we engage our communities. Now, many of our NISE Network partners are looking toward the challenge of reopening our doors once restrictions are lifted. What can your organization do to make visitors feel safe, and how can you protect the health and safety of your staff? Which programs and events will you continue to offer virtually, and which programs will you be able to responsibly offer in-person while adhering to local, state and federal guidelines? And how can you think creatively to preserve your organization’s core identity and impact while adjusting to new circumstances? Presenters on this workshop presented several strategies and approaches to navigating the reopening of our doors to the communities we love to serve. Online Workshop was recorded 5-26-2020.
