What are the shared responsibilities of an employer and employee? How can technology improve productivity and promote equity?

Unfortunately, many businesses fail to create a culture of inclusion that puts them at a disadvantage when managing uncertainty. How can managers better listen to internal and external stakeholders? How can these diverse perspectives better inform business decision making?
