WBC’s Executive Roundtable Series

The unprecedented nature of the Coronavirus Diseases pandemic has spawned the most abrupt economic and social disruption in decades, leaving organizations reeling. For some organizations, near-term survival is the priority. The massive scale of the outbreak and its unpredictability is ushering in a paradigm shift to the global economic order and ways in which workers are deployed. The effectiveness with which leaders pivot their organizations in this environment will surely have a sustained impact on their businesses’ viability and reputations. Great leaders stand up with their employees, customers, suppliers, boards, shareholders and communities. 

In an effort to provide perspective, resources and leadership, Women Business Collaborative launched its Executive Roundtable Series. Participants tune in to hear the stories of prominent leaders who are shepherding their organizations through the crisis, forging new norms that include innovative approaches to living and prospering. Sign up to our upcoming sessions and stay tuned for new dates and speakers!
