Responsible leadership during the corona crisis (Dec. 9, 2020)

[Recording of a livestreamed online event, also available on YouTube] Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we have seen examples of people from all walks of life demonstrating exemplary leadership – and we have seen decision-makers fail miserably. In all these cases, there are important lessons to be learned. In this second annual STaR-hosted event at the WU Matters WU Talks series, we discussed what leadership in a crisis really meant and shared best practices to help us be better prepared for future crises.
