COVID-19 has been labeled by some as “the great revealer” – tragically showcasing the many disparities that have existed for decades in our society by impacting certain communities and segments of the population at greater rates than others. The pause button this pandemic placed on our lives has shed light on issues that many activists have been asking us to listen to for years.
But now businesses are making plans to “bounce back” and “get back to work.” Instead of getting back to business as usual, can we capture the lessons and identify opportunities for changes to usual business practices that create value for business and society? As philanthropists and business leaders, what is our role in helping to solve the greatest challenges in our community and around the world? What are some immediate steps we can integrate into our business practices now that will make an impact?
