COVID-19 Response & Action

We are continuing to monitor the news regarding COVID-19, and the health and safety of our community is our top priority. In an effort to help slow the spread of the virus and protect the vulnerable among us, we have decided to postpone our March 19th Women’s Event and all EDGE Groups have been asked to meet virtually until further notice.

During this time of uncertainty and unrest, we encourage you to take care of yourselves and one another. And as we navigate the transition into a more virtual workforce, community, and overall lifestyle, remember that social distancing doesn’t mean social isolation.

Here at EDGE, we will be promoting and leveraging the power of virtual community to combat the already pervasive loneliness epidemic. We have created an online community through Slack for our mentors and mentees to stay connected while we practice social distancing. We will use our digital platforms to encourage online interaction and connection. And we will continue our mission to build meaningful relationships, because that’s what we need most right now.

In the words of Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky, “Every hand that we don’t shake must become a phone call that we place. Every embrace that we avoid must become a verbal expression of warmth and concern. Every inch and every foot that we physically place between ourselves and another, must become a thought as to how we might be of help to that other, should the need arise.” 

Here are some resources for you as we navigate this new normal together:
