It was noted that Covid exposed the disparity of ESG. It has opened the pathway that previously were stalled. It is unfortunate that a pandemic had to jump start ESG.

Understanding there is a time and place to address these ESG, but once you employees feel safe, talent will emerge! Embrace all people and each person has the power to change and advocate to each other.
Why measure ESG? What is measured is what is treasured. When you measure something it helps you provide goals you create intentional change that can be transformation that is real and not just a buzz word.
