GETTYSBURG, Pa. (May 17, 2020)—OPEN MINDS has announced that The 2020 OPEN MINDS Strategy & Innovation Institute will be held online, June 1-5, 2020.

The OPEN MINDS Strategy & Innovation Institute offers health and human service executives the opportunity, once a year, to get paradigm-shifting new ideas to leverage market trends, scale innovation, and gather tools and skills to build a long-term plan for sustainability. This year, the event is going virtual to provide a strategic learning and networking opportunity for executives planning long-term crisis recovery and resilience, while accommodating the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 crisis.

Oss, chief executive officer at OPEN MINDS. “That’s why we are recreating the great content and experience that the Strategy & Innovation Institute always offers in a digital format. Executives across the country can now leverage the benefits from the comfort of their homes.”
