Over the last few weeks, it has been so valuable for us to hear your feedback on IRC digital programs and the sorts of opportunities that interest you. In the calendar below, you'll find a little of everything – a substantive panel conversation on public health infrastructure, an introduction to theThai language, a dive into how local journalism navigates a global pandemic, and some practical tips on job searching at this challenging time.

We know that this is a challenging and quickly changing time. As we plan more conversations for the weeks ahead, please let us know what's most valuable to you or what you might enjoy – or let us know if you'd like to lead a program. After all, it's IRC members and friends who bring such curiosity, insight, perspective, and vitality to the work we do.

Thanks for being part of our IRC community.

Kind regards,

Matthew Hughes, Executive Director• 816-897-6474
