Weeks 2-4: October 5th - October 23rd, 2020 Participants return to their own offices but remain connected with virtual workshops and continued mentor touch points. Week 5: October 26th - October 30th 2020 In the final week of the program, the participating companies return to Minneapolis for the remaining workshop and mentor sessions.
