WHF/WHFF Partner Series: The New Normal in the Covid-19 Environment

The Partner Series is a virtual version of WHF’s signature Brown Bag Lunches (BBLs). Members are asked to give a donation to the WHF Foundation to attend the event (a suggested amount of $5). Nonmembers (who would otherwise not have access to our BBLs) can register for $10. Because our BBLs are typically provided free of charge, the entire amount of the donation should be tax deductible; however we cannot provide you with tax advice and recommend you consult your tax advisor.

Description: How can we balance normalcy amidst the restrictions? How do I maintain social distance at work? What does all of this mean?
