While at the beginning slogans like “together alone” might have made us feel connected, that has slipped away and many of us are feeling like our worlds are a whole lot smaller than before.

She explains what Exec Directors and fundraisers themselves can do to keep people in post for longer doing their best work. That’s a win for everybody. Let’s tune in.
