Speaker: Agatha Hood, Head of Client Partnerships, Unity Operate, Unity

There have been several studies on how the pandemic and its economic fallout have had a regressive effect on gender equality in the workplace, but it has also offered lessons that may be used to help level the playing field for women and other minorities as we forge ahead. This session will consider how video meetings and work-from-home collaboration tools can provide more of level playing field for those who may not have as much opportunity to contribute in live meetings. The speaker will discuss why the democratization of the gallery view in video meetings gives all participants a ‘seat at the table.’ She will address how the dynamic of having a everyone appear in the same size screen may allow more timid workers to speak up and how a remote environment provides flexibility that has allowed some women and minorities to increase their voice and productivity. The session will ensure we consider the positive aspects of a remote work environment so that we can maintain those benefits moving forward.
