A Road to Re-Opening

A webinar series for CBOs

Is your organization beginning the planning process for re-opening, partially or fully?

Are you an essential business that never closed but have colleagues working virtually who may rejoin colleagues working in the field?

SVCN/CADRE and our Co-Hosts bring to you experiences and learning both from your nonprofit peers as well as experts in office design, human resources, and real estate to discuss and answer your questions about reopening.

Let's take a deep dive into space planning and learn about:

  • Structure of office environments including ideas for your physical layouts and floor plans

  • How to structure and mark off common areas like restrooms, kitchen/break rooms, shared equipment areas such as copy machines, printers, office supply cabinets, and other high touch surfaces or areas  

  • Planning considerations such as HVAC airflow and use of directional walking paths in indoor office/service environments

  • and more...

Let's hear from nonprofit human resources professionals about how to care for our colleagues in this, often more stressful, new environment.

And let's learn about shared office space as a cost-saving strategy from nonprofit real estate experts, AND meet with other nonprofits who are interested in exploring shared spare arrangements.
