One thing I am finding extremely important in this very uncertain time - staying connected to our HBI team.
Today, on two continents in 20 different locations - all 38 people who make up the HBI team met on a Zoom internet call. It was the first time, virtually or physically we've gotten our whole team together . . . and, it was great.
Being together today - with variable audio connections and a multitude of interpretations of virtual meeting etiquette - it was just awesome. It was so great to see the totality of our family. And, that's really what the meeting was all about - being together as an HBI family. This challenge has pulled us together It has made us stronger.
We have a lot of work to do. We can't forget, as our conversation focused today, the marginalized and underserved of our communities. We must remember - in this time of great struggle, we must build bridges to help people recapture their lives once this challenge is behind us.
No one has a crystal ball as to what the future holds - but one thing is clear, HBI is finding our groove We are uniting as a committed group. We are banding together as a family.
