[English] Women in Innovation - Nikkei Virtual Global Forum
New ways of living and working in a post-corona world
The Covid-19 pandemic brought tremendous change to the daily lives of people across the globe. Out of the blue, commuters found themselves having to work from home, and for some the loss of face-to-face meetings and even informal conversations that were vital to their work posed a huge challenge. What impact will these changes have on the role of women at work and at home? Will the virus change our definition of success? How long will the effects last? Women leaders from around the world join us to discuss the changes brought on by coronavirus, and to tell us what they think the future holds for our careers and ways of life.
