Unity in a time of separation

I am thrilled to share the publication of our second volume of Issue 13 of Reinvention: Vol 13 issue 2 published on the 31st October 2020. It’s been a challenging six months since the last edition (13.1) and I feel like it’s important not to take for granted the fact that we’ve been able to pull the issue together despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
