Programming Update, WISE NYC Metro chapter will postpone all planned in-person activities though April 30, 2020

PROGRAMMING UPDATE – The Impact of Covid-19

March 16 - July 28

We know the outbreak of COVID-19 is affecting everyone in our WISE community, regardless of what area of our industry you reside. The impact is causing all of us to examine our daily lives and movements and as an organization, WISE is doing the same.

The NYC Metro Chapter has several events planned over the next few months and would like nothing better than to be with all of you and come together as a community, but our primary concern is and will always be the safety of our members and colleagues.

Therefore, we will postpone all planned in-person activities for the time being to ensure we are following the CDC recommendation to practice social distancing and avoid large gatherings for everyone’s safety. We plan to distribute members-only programming and public programs virtually in the days ahead.

We will continue to monitor this unprecedented – and rapidly changing – moment in time and provide updates accordingly.

Take care of yourselves and your families.
