Fairness in Remote Work
The transition to remote work, while having its challenges, has also brought unexpected positive changes to the new way that we work. Now more than ever, workers from different locations around the world, who may have found it difficult to connect remotely before, are able to connect fairly throughout remote space.
In this episode, host Doug Thomas speaks with Hanna Wallach, Senior Researcher at Microsoft.
