The World is Reopening…But What About Me?: Webinar Recap

Left-pointing arrow

2020 has been a uniquely stressful year. This pandemic has made incredible demands, pushing us in new, often stressful ways. As businesses move to reopen, have you taken a second to stop and think about your own opportunity for reopening?

Ward Bullard and Jeff Eyet from the MURAL for Education team recently welcomed Sari Gluckin of Wishful Thinking for The World is Reopening … But What About Me? This much-needed session was held with MURAL users to focus discussion and thoughts on well-being during the pandemic — all to help us to build resilience and adapt to an uncertain future.

As part of the session, Sari took attendees on an illustrated journey, created with Jessica Bogart Kasper and Julia Rochlin, recent graduates of IIT’s Institute of Design. The visual experience unfolded like a fairytale. Attendees shared their bright spots during the pandemic, tossed what doesn’t serve them into a roaring fire, and created personal opportunities for reopening.
