When can we get back to “Normal”? This is a question most of us are wondering and asking ourselves. It is still too early to say, but something is certain, Covid-19 will surely have a permanent impact on many areas of our lives for a long time.

What can we learn from the priorities advanced by the Nordics? What has worked, what has not, and what is still a work-in-progress? How can this knowledge help when restoring the economy and family life.

Speakers include representatives of the 5 Nordic Consulates and their guests, introduction by Jackie Bassett, Director of People Strategy, University of Chicago Medicine.

Join our Zoom presentation and Q&A on March 18 at 1 p.m. Central
