Connecting through COVID-19

While COVID-19 might separate us physically in the short term, the world – and our work – hasn’t stopped. Now, more than ever, we need to stay connected.

Understanding that our approach to community and stakeholder engagement must pivot to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we've brought leading minds from across RPS together to facilitate your #digitalpivot and help you start a positive project conversation online.

Connecting digitally, connecting broadly

The physical separation we are currently experiencing for COVID-19 is a golden opportunity to put digital tools to use engaging the traditionally underrepresented on important projects and initiatives, explains Phoebe Schumacher.
