How can you work well while working remotely? In this presentation, we'll introduce you to the basics and beyond of a few powerful tools to help you manage projects, communicate with colleagues, and boost workplace culture whether you're based in an office or not. Kaitlyn Wells (Wirecutter) will demonstrate how to use project management platforms Airtable and Basecamp, and Anna Perling (Wirecutter) will share tips for how to use the communication app Slack. Adam Schweigert (Mother Jones, formerly INN) will go beyond the tools to talk about creating a remote culture that works for your teammates, company, and the communities you serve. After, we'll break out into three groups for demo closeups and questions. You'll walk away with a resource sheet of additional tools and tips for remote working.
