2020 ... The year of the great toilet paper crisis, remote work, homeschooling, virtual conferencing, figuring out how to use the mute button, virtual workouts, nasal swabs and "new normals." A year of challenging conversations, calls for change and commitments to do better.
To say that 2020 tested us beyond measure would be an understatement. However, even though the year brought many formidable obstacles and stressful situations, we were able to lean into our core values and make the best of a very difficult situation for our employees, clients and partners, and use our resources to support those in need during a global pandemic.
In 2020, we worked hard to focus on what we could control; on being grateful for what we had and not what we lost. We used the constraints and challenges we faced as a way to think about doing things in new ways. We also continued to invest in our people and their growth to prepare for the "new normal" in a post-pandemic world.
At a minimum, 2020 gave us an education we won't soon forget.
