In October 2020, I was invited to be a guest on Donna Miller’s Purse Power webinar. We discussed the large number of women leaving corporate America due to COVID and my concerns that we could be facing a 10-year roll-back of women in the leadership pipeline as a result of the pandemic. Companies that come out of this time stronger will be those that displayed empathy, focused on talent, took action and had a sense of urgency. I also talk about the need to create gender advocates to support women’s leadership initiatives.
