This latest article from the Executive Talent magazine by the Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants asks, "Going forward, how can C-level executives best ensure cultures of inclusion in the post-COVID workplace, and in turn, best attract and retain top talent?"

Executive leaders are going to have to navigate this reality and accept that the right way forward may look like nothing we've ever seen before.
