In April 2020, Providence realized that they were going through a threshold moment because of the pandemic. They found inspiration in the following quote:
“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging our… prejudice…our data banks and dead ideas…behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.” Arundhati Roy, “The Pandemic Portal.”
Amy will share how Providence has been using data and information to change, drive, and accelerate into the future because of the things they have had to do very rapidly in the past 18 months.
