    CEO Mary Barra on GM's Role in Times of Crisis

    CEO Mary Barra on GM's Role in Times of Crisis

    When Covid-19 hit GM’s radar in early 2020, GM’s CEO Mary Barra knew she had to move. Over the course of a few months, she closed plants, instituted austerity measures and, incredibly, changed from making cars to making ventilators. As an “action-oriented” leader, she’s always moved fast. But this was different. And when George Floyd’s death sparked a movement, Barra put GM on the forefront, setting a goal of making GM “the most inclusive company in the world.” She talks to Daniel Roth, LinkedIn’s Editor in Chief, about how GM made the changes and how she holds herself accountable.

    Innovating in a Crisis with Spanx’ Sara Blakely

    Sara Blakely, the founder and CEO of Spanx, is the definition of “self-made.” She took $5,000, which she’d earned selling fax machines door to door, and parlayed it into a company that women around the world now depend on. It made her a billionaire. Sara and her family are riding out the pandemic in an RV. They pulled over “somewhere in Florida” so she could chat with LinkedIn Editor in Chief Daniel Roth on This is Working. They discussed Spanx’s origins, how Sara is pivoting the company to respond to the current crisis, and why she is personally investing $5M to help women entrepreneurs hurt by the pandemic.

    Airbnb was born in a recession, but it has never experienced a crisis like this. The short-term rental site saw its business dry up in mid-March when the pandemic froze worldwide travel. That’s bad for Airbnb — it’s disastrous for the economy it invented: Hosts have earned $100 billion through rentals and more than 50% of them rely on that cash to pay mortgages or avoid evictions. Co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky joins LinkedIn Editor in Chief Daniel Roth for a frank conversation about the state of the industry, the state of Airbnb and the future of post-pandemic travel.
