As we transitioned to working remotely, we expanded our online infrastructure, automated more administrative processes and banked on innovative approaches to keep most of our programmatic areas of work going.
Under the new normal, safety was paramount for our staff and in our operations. We established new guidelines for conducting research during the pandemic, adopted hybrid methods for data collection, reprogrammed some projects, and embraced the virtual space for training and stakeholder engagement. Our approach saw the Center break new ground in reaching wider audiences with evidence, tools, and resources. It also saw our work in policy engagement and training continue almost unabated.
