Let's Connect: Operations
Chief Operations Officers are responsible for ensuring your organization runs like a smooth-oiled machine. What do you do when your operating environment changes dramatically due to COVID-19? Every organization has had to adapt how they deliver services, fundraise, and ensure the day-to-day gets done.
Join Lucinda Noches Talbert, Vice President of Operations at KC Health Kids, as she shares how her organization has pivoted operations and what you can do as a leader to ensure the trains continue to run on time. This session will use breakout rooms to facilitate small group discussion where everyone will have the opportunity to ask questions, share promising practices, and network together.
This is a program of the Let's Connect Virtual Discussion Series.
