The global pandemic changed everything, from our health and well-being to ways in which we communicate. It led to millions remote working amid huge swathes of digital transformation projects that needed to be accelerated to support this radical change in business environment. This panel will explore some of the innovations around working from home and the digital revolution to see if this has increased equity, and gauge the future as we hope for a period of normality in 2022 and beyond.
