COVID-19: How AnnieCannons is Responding

At AnnieCannons, our utmost priority is protecting the health, safety, and well-being of the survivors we serve through our software development training program.  To mitigate the potential impacts the virus can have on the lives and livelihoods of our students and broader community, we have temporarily shifted all classroom instruction to a remote platform to do our part in halting the spread of the virus, and provided students’ with accommodations for connectivity and hardware.  We have also shared the latest COVID-19 prevention and response recommendations to empower survivors with the information they need to protect their health and the health of their families. Our training Instructors are checking-in with each student to make sure they have the resources and support they need during this time of uncertainty; for survivors, immediate crises can often trigger historic trauma. Importantly, we have taken measures as an organization to reinforce our investment in families and our unwavering commitment to promoting an inclusive workplace, especially for women. These measures include encouraging employees to make use of our generous paid sick and time off policies during this time, and covering local transport for any essential work-related travel through our partnership with Uber Community Impact Initiative.  Click here …
