COVID-19 Outbreak Preparedness by HERS
We know you are concerned about the COVID-19 outbreak, which is already impacting many of your campuses. We know because we’re concerned as well. That won’t stop us from pursuing our mission: advancing women leaders.
Wellesley 2020-21 HERS Leadership Institute: If public health concerns have not subsided by September 2020, HERS will implement either a remote learning or virtual learning plan. Remote learning was used in March 2020 to finish out Wellesley 2019-20, and we plan on using virtual learning for our Summer 2020 programs. Regardless of the delivery method, you will have access to the same facilitators, peer mentoring, and support. We will ensure you have the ability to lead when we most need leaders like you.
HERS continues to closely monitor the situation involving COVID-19. Your health and wellness are important to us, and we know that many of you are managing rapid change and uncertainty. We want you to know that HERS is here to support you. HERS continues to be engaged and dedicated toward advancing women leaders.
A top priority is the health and well-being of our HERS Leadership Institute summer participants. We are committed to delivering the HERS Leadership Institute in one of the following formats:
HERS will continue to re-evaluate and provide updates on the HLI as they become available. Please stay well at home, at work, and in your local communities.
For our Summer 2020 Participants
Your leadership advancement remains our focus, so we are also developing contingency plans for the delivery of our other programs in 2020, specifically our summer HERS Leadership Institute offerings. For those already registered as well as those interested in applying, we will deliver the Leadership Institute this summer, so keep the originally scheduled dates reserved on your calendar. We recommend waiting to make travel arrangements as the COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly.
We are monitoring the situation daily and will update you regularly via email and our website.
