Join us on this asynchronous discussion forum

Before we meet on Monday for the online retreat, our team has designed an asynchronous activity for you to engage with other participants. We learn and reflect better when we know others are going through similar situations and challenges. Let’s start the conversation to engage and build a learning community together – online!
