Accurate, timely information is among the key weapons in our response to the multiple crises we’re experiencing: the COVID-19 pandemic, from understanding public health warnings and directives to planning for what’s ahead; the ongoing fight against racial injustice, from listening to community leaders to working toward lasting solutions; and the looming economic recession, from analyzing the data and trends to advancing policy goals. The Bay Area Council’s series of weekly webinars feature top experts providing information, insights and guidance on a range of topics from public health, to federal and local policy, to business continuity.

The complete webinar series can be accessed below. You can find these videos and more on the Bay Area Council’s YouTube Channel.
