STS Highlights July 2021

STS Highlights: July 2021

As you may expect, July is a time to focus on freedom, independence, and celebrations of country and culture. It’s the time of year that I personally sit down and re-read three very important documents in history. I’ve linked to the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence below if you want to add it to your reading list for the month.

The goal with these monthly resources is always to help elevate your career, department, or organization. Please SHARE this post with anyone who could benefit from the content. As always, we take pride in helping you meet your training requirements and goals.

Sincerely,
Patrick
