There will likely be much written 100 years from now about how we dealt with the global pandemic of COVID-19. Although there were many days of stress, anxiety and fear of the unknown, there was also a deliberate attempt by colleagues to maintain a sense of normalcy and collegiality in their lives. The picture attached captures a group of colleagues working on a joint project experiencing a moment of levity and of celebration on moving a project forward to launch. It’s an example of the resilience of our staff. It’s very unlikely such a group picture would have been taken if we were not working in a remote format. It made me think of all the times a group of colleagues felt success had been achieved but may not have been marked with a group photo or otherwise. A silver lining of the pandemic was that such moments were able to be captured.
