In the spirit of collective care, NEC has closed our offices this week to recognize the impact that the pandemic and uprisings have had on our staff. Even though we’re out of the office, we still wanted to share a scaled-back Roundup with some of our favorite new economy stories from last week (7/16-7/23), new job listings, and upcoming events. Thank you for your patience as we pause to prioritize rest and reflection over productivity in this moment. Wishing you all a moment of rest and care wherever you may be <3
