There’s no question –  we’ve all had to rework work like never before.

It’s because of this home-life/work-life collision that Rework Work’s CEO and LinkedIn Learning Author, has dug into the LinkedIn Learning library to identify a learning path that provides “Five Ways to Rock Remote Work.” This collection of videos provides tips and tools to ensure that your business not only survives the current circumstances but continues to thrive in spite of them.

Simply Good: Celebrate Diversity and Autism Awareness

I love the month of April, which is known as Celebrate Diversity Month. As you may know, honoring diversity is kind of my thing, so when there’s an entire month focused on celebrating diversity, I want to dance in the street.

Given the current COVID-19 crisis and stay-at-home orders, we can’t mark these occasions with the usual schedule of events. Instead, we can commit to becoming better educated. Learning more about the symptoms and realities of ASD, as well as identifying where in our workplaces or social circles we are lacking the benefits of diversity — these are the best ways to celebrate.

To that end, below are a few encouraging stories to get you started.
