The impacts of Covid are being felt widely. At WCM, there have been a few silver linings, most notably the commitment we are seeing from long-term sponsors to diversity even at a time of crisis. In addition, it has accelerated our digital strategy in powerful ways and allowed us a bigger stage for thought leadership. Stay tuned for new initiatives, coming soon.
