ideascape view: The key to strategy-setting post-pandemic is building resilience; managing the D&I impacts of COVID-19 means understanding its multi-dimensional effects. This article expertly highlights how pay equity will become a long-term issue post COVID-19, but this problem is not one-size-fits-all-women.
