Path Forward: Deep Dive: How is the Pandemic Influencing Consumers

Thursday, April 30, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

WHAT IS PATH FORWARD

America is beginning to consider what it will take to restart the economy after a lengthy shutdown. It’s increasingly clear that the most likely approach is a gradual, phased reopening linked to regional conditions. But any effort to bring millions of people back to work comes with lots of big, complicated questions.

Path Forward, a new program from the U.S. Chamber Foundation, is designed to help business and community leaders find the answers they need to develop a responsible reopening strategy.

When will it be safe to reopen? How do we protect employees and customers from the coronavirus? Where will my staff get COVID-19 tests? Masks? Gloves? Who’s going to pay for all this? Each episode features conversations between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Suzanne Clark and experts with practical recommendations for businesses of all sizes.

Path Forward events take place at 3 p.m. EST every Monday and Thursday. Register Now.

If you can’t attend, you’ll find a recording of each episode on the Foundation’s website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.
