The Impact of COVID 19 on Restaurants & Retail

On June 4, 2020, the Women’s Leadership Network hosted an online panel discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on restaurants and retail. The response to our first virtual event was very encouraging, with more than 100 registrants. In case you missed it, or would like to review the discussion, the event was recorded.
