    Dear GVV Colleagues,

    I do hope that you and yours are staying healthy and weathering the current challenges we all are facing around the world with Covid-19. I have been impressed at the resilience and creativity with which so many have found ways to continue their best work in new ways and to be inspired to ask new questions and voice new approaches to values-driven leadership. Thank you for that!

    Although the need to stay put has been a challenge, I am so pleased to report that the Giving Voice To Values programs that were scheduled for the next 3-4 months are all being rescheduled or going virtual. The work continues at this even more critical time for us to find constructive and effective ways to enact our best selves.
