We’ve always believed the world would be better if more countries and companies were run by women. And 2020 proved us right: women leaders consistently stood out for their empathetic and effective response to Covid-19. In this episode, we talk to two notable women leaders—Shellye Archambeau and Sheryl Sandberg—about how they navigated an incredibly difficult year, how our definition of a “good” leader is evolving, and how all leaders can take steps to get working women through this crisis.
