Adorable pets organized a zoom call with approximately 80 Emerson staff members
About the Coronavirus
Emerson's Top Chefs was a community event for employees of Emerson that was facilitated via Zoom. We had asked for 3 volunteers to do a 15 minute cooking demo for people to watch and learn a new recipe. We then had sign-ups for people to watch the Zoom event and we had roughly 35 people watching the 3 talented cooks. There was a lot of chatting in the chat section of the call by viewers and a smattering of questions answered by the chefs after they finished cooking. It was a wonderful success to bring people together.
We are all essential.
Dedicated to my black family members, friends, and neighbors. I see you. I hear you. I stand with you.

My mother, Helen Virginia Gutierrez Zwick, died unexpectedly on July 17, 2020. Her cause of death was COVID-19 pneumonia. After an article was published in The Miami Herald profiling her career in social work, the German magazine Der Spiegel reached out to me for an interview. My mother was one of 50 people profiled internationally, and one of four Americans featured in the cover story. The article, of course, is in German. I received my complimentary copy from the publisher October 19, 2020, mailed from Germany. The sympathy card is from a friend in Toronto, who mailed me two additional copies of the issue. Wear a mask.
