Knowledge Program Manager
In 2020-2021, IDHC wholeheartedly welcomed new Knowledge Program Manager, Jessica Pace, to the team, and with Jessica, IDHC ushered in a new era of the Knowledge department. Thirteen days after Jessica settled into her office, the provincial government announced the Covid-19 pandemic and the entire IDHC organization was directed to work remotely. Without the invaluable face-to-face engagement with her new colleagues, Jessica hit the ground running nonetheless. Jessica launched a monthly webinar series, developed and revised resources, hosted a series of professional trainings, and responded to a flood of Covid-19 knowledge requirements—all from her home office. How do you follow that act? For training inquiries, contact Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org or C. 289-407-1033 or T. 1-888-514-1370.
