In-Person Gatherings Paused through March in Proactive COVID-19 Response

Last night the leadership team of the Whidbey Institute made the difficult decision to pause all in-person programming in light of emerging data about the spread of novel coronavirus. This important decision feels aligned with what we’re learning about the projected course of this virus and our responsibility to protect public health: through social distancing, including through the cancellation or postponement of public gatherings. This decision is centered on our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our program participants, staff, and communities as well as the health of those in our regional communities and beyond.

With our work in growing the capacity of people and communities to engage generatively with the challenges of our time, we are present to the importance of how we collectively respond in the coming days and months. This is a moment that invites adaptive leadership, collective care, and wise action from each of us. We’re grateful to have you with us.
