Re-imagining Together: A panel discussion on reopening during COVID-19.

As risk professionals, we must evaluate risk and the need to return to operations has never been greater. Join us as the panelists speak about lessons learned, barriers and opportunities they have had to consider while developing a plan for their organizations. This panel session includes various industries including manufacturing, office, retail, and direct public engagement.

Our Speakers:

Dominique Morel, Director, Retail operations - REI Co-Op  

I am a Colorado native who traveled frequently in my youth as the daughter of an Army nurse.  I studied at the University of Colorado (Go Buffs!) and was working to clarify my life direction when an unexpected opportunity to work as an opening employee at a “New Store” in Colorado Springs.  Little did I know REI would become a career path with numerous challenges, learnings, and rewards along the way.  I worked in the field in numerous locations and roles for +12 years, and have been at Co-Op HQ for 8 years in Retail Operations.

Currently living in Seattle, WA with my wife Antoinette, 3 year old daughter Sasha, and our newest addition, 4 month old puppy Harper, I enjoy chasing my daughter on her balance bike, hiking and paddling, and enjoy photography in my free time.
