With the onset of COVID-19 and the spreading global pandemic, Safe Passage Across Networks (SPAN), created a gathering space for transitions support professionals from around the world, called “The Nest.” Once a month, we gathered to equip ourselves with information on timely transition themes, connect with other participants virtually in break-out rooms and leave feeling refreshed in this isolating time and work.
“The Nest” is now a monthly online gathering of transitions care providers worldwide. Grown out of the need for connection in the coronavirus crisis, we join together for a chance to discuss a transitions topic with special guests. After the plenary session, there is time for small break-out rooms, to chat with each other around that topic, and return to the group to share more ideas. For safety and trust, the rooms and discussion afterwards are not recorded, but we do summarize the thoughts and ideas as an addendum to the main recording.
