22NTC Session: Program
Creating Togetherness Through Play When You Can’t Be Together
Submitted by: Jennifer Javornik


Organizations have been forever disrupted and for many organizations, the transition to virtual, at least in some capacity, will be permanent.  People now are not limited to job or volunteer opportunities in their backyard and, without a feeling of community, it’s going to be increasingly tempting for them to jump ship.   In this session, you will learn just exactly how this shift to virtual has affected the employee and volunteer experience and you will learn ways to build a feeling of togetherness through play.
