WBC’s Executive Roundtable Series

COVID-19 and the focus on gender and diversity have created an abrupt dislocation for all companies whether it relates to the consideration of the future of work for what will likely be a far greater proportion of remote workers, recalibrating to changes in customer behavior; retooling how supply chains function and, potentially, redefining business performance metrics. Leaders are rapidly making changes to the way they lead unlocking greater innovation through high levels of engagement of their workforces; reinventing collaboration; embracing shareholder capitalism; and putting greater emphasis on “to be” lists — including the importance of leading with empathy and building a different level of trust with their employees. This alongside of remaining laser focused on “to do” lists. As one CEO recently put it, the crisis has led to an “acceleration of the future.” Great Leaders see this moment in time as a unique opportunity for self-calibration and mapping a thesis for transformation that works for their individual organizations.

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. Stay tuned for new dates and speakers!
