- Intentionality of activity will be delivered whether in person or by virtual means.
- Collective understanding that all are operating under the same or different stressors will be considered, whether professionally or personally.
- Transformational implementation of varied process, protocol and program delivery will be explored, and where appropriate, implemented.
- Communication that offers guidance and instills confidence in the integrity and intention to preserve the safety and health of the SSW community.
