    Two years of Covid and endless experimentation with remote and hybrid work models. George Floyd’s murder. And now Russia’s war in Ukraine.
    We’re going to pause our “regular” DesignOps Community programming, and spend time together identifying and acknowledging a host of perplexing, unanticipated, and frankly traumatizing issues, and discussing how to get through them in the context of DesignOps work.

    What do you do when, due to a crisis:
    • Your team includes people in countries affected by war?
    • Your colleague is the target of bias or prejudice?
    • You need to identify and find new skills or training to help your people cope?
    • A critical tool or platform your team relies upon is suddenly unavailable or supported?
    • The communications channels you’ve relied upon to manage DesignOps are no longer functional?
    • You can’t stay positive or motivated, and you’re wondering if you should be doing something other than “business as usual”?

    How have you addressed these challenges so far? What would you have done differently? And how can you be better prepared for the next crisis?
    Join us and we’ll talk about it together. Lou Rosenfeld will facilitate this community conversation, joined by the DesignOps Community curators. If you have a story or lesson you can share in no more than five minutes, let us know by EOD March 16 ( and we’ll give you the floor.

    After the call, you’ll be added to our free community and receive notifications of future calls!
