Hybrid working and the impact on women and underrepresented people

This week’s conversation was prompted by a thought-provoking article entitled Could The New Hybrid Workplace Turn Some Women Into Second-Class Employees?

As the statistics make for a worrying read, we ask: What are organisations doing to support people who choose to work from home? How can we ensure unconscious bias doesn’t adversely impact those who are ‘out of sight’? What can business leaders and communicators do to make sure that women and underrepresented people are not further excluded from opportunities?

We discuss the responsibility of individuals to ‘show up’ and be visible. There’s heated debate around knowing how and when to nurture people. Plus agreement to scrap D&I policies, and that “designing for the minority will benefit the majority” to make work a very different place.

Please continue the conversation, share your thoughts and ideas by connecting via Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn.
