Reaching Out to a Remote Workforce
A series of free webinars and podcasts offered pertinent leadership and career advice during the pandemic.
Tapping into the expertise of Villanova faculty as the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way Americans work, Villanova’s College of Professional Studies and Graduate Liberal Arts and Sciences launched a series of free webinars and podcasts this past spring to offer much-needed career- and leadership-oriented advice.
“We really started as a way of providing meaningful and actionable information to people who were trying to find their way through the pandemic,” says CPS Dean Christine Kelleher Palus, PhD.
Led by Villanova faculty from a wide range of disciplines and industries, some webinars attracted as many as 1,500 participants.
Presentations on emerging topics, including managing projects in uncertain times, continuity planning for pandemics, leadership and communication during times of change, and mental health and stress in the workplace, cover the skills critical to adapting to any situation in the post-pandemic era.
