2020 was a year none of us will ever forget, and that’s not just because of the coronavirus pandemic. From the Australian Black Summer bushires, to the Beirut explosion, to the global Black Lives Matter movement and the most contentious US election in history… it was a huge 12 months.

To help you achieve your goals this year we’ve compiled our most popular resources from 2020 – eBooks, whitepapers, webinar recordings and blogs – from Herrmann’s community of inclusive leaders, culture champions, and learning & development catalysts.
