At the midpoint of 2020, we’re mindful that it’s been an extremely challenging year across the world. We’re in the midst of a pandemic that continues to impact all of us, our communities and our economies.

We’ve been impressed by what we’ve seen so far: The resiliency and accelerated innovation among large and small U.S. businesses; efforts by our national, state, and local governments to support our communities; and most of all, the dedication and unprecedented cooperation among our front-line health professionals, medical researchers, and everyday people to guide us through this health crisis.
