In October, EMpower’s East and South East Asia Programs team organized a two-webinar series ‘Bring Programs Online’ with 10 grantee partners throughout the region. These webinars provided a space for partners to share their online tools, best practices, and learnings from shifting to virtual programming. This webinar provided the partners with an important time to exchange challenges and lessons from navigating the COVID-19 pandemic. Overall, there were many great solutions that partners found when navigating virtual programs. Key takeaways from the webinar highlight the resiliency and innovation of our partners.
