We are all being tested as never before by the COVID-19 pandemic.
During these challenging times when we cannot physically connect with loved ones, friends, family and colleagues, the support and interaction we can offer each other becomes increasingly important.
We are bombarded by a myriad of opinions and news, both real and fake, and sometimes it is hard to work through the maze of information hitting our inboxes and social media feeds. Many of us are feeling anxious and unsure how this will all play out.
ECU is home to leading academics and researchers whose expert opinion is sought after and who can provide interesting commentary on relevant trending topics separating the fact from fiction.
We want to share their insights with you. We want to share learning and professional development opportunities, moments of light relief and laughter and keep you updated with our virtual events and activities.
Please check in with us often on this page. Tell us what you want to see here.
We are listening.
Let’s look after each other so we come out the other end strong and capable with renewed energy and new friendships forged through these extraordinary circumstances.
So grab a coffee and join us …….
