Leadership Perspectives: Leading during COVID-19

Tuesday, September 29 | 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Virtual Event

Around the world, this year has been unlike any other in modern history, and universities are no exception. From an abrupt campus shutdown to unplanned virtual course delivery to transitioning to a remote workforce to the suspension of elective surgeries, WashU has rapidly responded to the impact of COVID-19. Through it all, the guiding principle has been the safety, health and well-being of the university community.

Join us for a discussion with Chancellor Andrew Martin and Steven Lawrence, infectious disease expert from the School of Medicine. In addition to being privy to the why behind the university’s approach to leading through a global pandemic, you’ll hear insights on the current state of the virus and thoughts on what’s on the horizon.

Trying to figure out how to access the event was VERY difficult and when I did, my connection was lost after just a minute- probably my connectivity issue- not WU's. I was unable to figure out how to access the event again and got frustrated with trying to!! May I suggest in teh futire that an email or evite is sent with a Zoom link?
