As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

Across the globe, momentum is building to get people back to work and open businesses. As we contemplate a return to the workplace it is critical to define strategic standards and identify key issues for a safe pathway back to the workplace. Until a vaccine is found most experts envision a solution based on interdisciplinary and societal-wide collaboration. Many policies under discussion include an array of elements — innovative combinations of diagnostic tests for antibodies or a record of treatment and recovery from COVID–19, digital technologies, transitional workplace arrangements, blended work settings, and supportive public policies.

On Monday, April 20th at 12:30pm EDT, the Atlantic Council will convene an expert panel to explore the strategic standards required to properly identify, authenticate, and certify a workforce ready for work in a post-coronavirus workplace. Hear from leading experts at the intersection of COVID–19, health science, digital technologies, workplace law and data privacy to understand what your agency, company, or institution can do to rapidly get your team back to work. Join the Atlantic Council’s GeoTech Center for a candid, incisive, and insightful discussion designed to inform your personal and professional decisions with the latest strategic information and experience from the field.

Please join us for this important conversation. You can register to receive further information on how to join the virtual audience via Zoom or watch the video live streamed on this web page. If you wish to join the question and answer period, you must join by the Zoom app or web after registering.
