How do we create a more inclusive normal? The convergence of the global pandemic and racial justice movement has shifted the way we work in ways we are just beginning to understand.

Two innovative leaders, Stephanie Douglass, VP of People, Vungle and Becca Gelenberg, Head of People Operations, Upstart have doubled down on their respective companies commitments to DE&I during this environment of change.
