This past summer, nearly 1,200 alumni from across MOR’s leadership development programs responded to our survey invitations and shared, amongst other things, how their MOR experiences have proven helpful during the pandemic and what they were prioritizing over the next six months. Your feedback is a gift, and we thank everyone who took the time to respond. At MOR, we are committed to supporting our alumni in your lifelong leadership journey. The insight provided by this survey is enabling MOR to craft a variety of new and evolved solutions to help you best meet the challenges of these times.
