“As employees begin to return to the office, now is the time to ensure that the upheavals we face are catalysts for change. While there’s been a lot of talk about an assignment, let’s choose a cover that’s themed around diversity, equity, and inclusion. Talent is scarce and diversity is the engine of any business. More than ever, women have an important role to play at all levels, in all sectors! Hybrid work should be an opportunity for women to contribute, and the Zoom cap shouldn’t be an additional barrier to their advancement. It is no longer acceptable to attribute our dismal progress to a lack of talent or know-how. If we’ve learned anything in the past 24 months, it’s that our future will be shaped by those who have had no voice in the past.
