It may be stop-start, and there’s a long way yet to go, but the road to recovery has begun. After 10 weeks of lockdown, businesses are making preparations to reopen offices and return to work.

But what does this mean for those who were made redundant, or were redeployed to a different role? How might it affect those whose employer decides to make changes, in order to make them more resilient in future?

Join us for the final part in the CMI Women ‘Managing the New Normal’ series, as Renee Raper and Thelma Ford-Escobar discuss difficult conversations, provide practical advice on how to turn setbacks into a springboard for new opportunities, and answer your questions live.

To view the session and take part you will need to join the CMI Women Facebook Group, which you can do here.
