SEO Response to COVID-19

To our SEO Family,

We know that the quickly evolving global health pandemic (COVID-19) has caused a major shift in all our lives. As an organization that exists to support young people, we recognize the deep impact this situation has on our community members, and especially on our participants.

We ensure the SEO community that we are ready to offer support in the best way that we possibly can, and that we are taking measures to keep our community safe. Within SEO, we have moved coaching and advising to be remote or online, put in-person programming on hold until further notice, arranged for virtually all team members to work remotely, and postponed upcoming events in both New York City and San Francisco, including the Annual Awards Dinner (scheduled 4/29) and Sip for SEO (scheduled 4/16).

We remind our Scholars, interns, fellows, team members, and the entirety of the SEO community that we are available to help with planning, guidance, and emotional support as we adjust. If you have questions or specific concerns, please reach out to your regular SEO contact via email; SEO is online and accessible.

The health and safety of our SEO Family is our top priority. We will remain steadfast in executing our mission while taking every precaution to ensure the well-being of our community.

The SEO Team
