After witnessing their businesses, and sometimes their entire sectors, wracked by the Covid-19 pandemic, leaders across every industry are now beginning to poke their heads out, assess the damage, and contemplate a new way forward. We know that their plans will change as they forge ahead, but we also know that there are lessons to be learned from what the most enterprising among them are grappling with right now, the options they’re weighing, and where they’re finding some optimism. As we know, all industries are interconnected, and remobilizing in any sustainable way is going to require a broad team effort.
That’s why today, we’re launching a series called The Shape of Tomorrow
, full of first-person accounts from the front lines of business. In the first installments, we’ll hear how top executives in healthcare
(from the CEOs of the Mayo and Cleveland clinics to the international president of Doctors Without Borders) and the restaurant industry
(from the CEOs of Chipotle and Panera Bread to the director of the Street Vendor Project) are charting a path forward. In the coming weeks, insiders in retail, advertising, travel, architecture, investing, sports, and more will offer their candid takes on the challenges, and opportunities, that lie ahead.
