In 2020, we all became part of the biggest workforce experiment in modern history: a massive redistribution of employees from shared offices into remote workspaces, most often their homes. The implications—both positive and negative—are laying the foundation for what work will look like in the years to come.
The FORTUNE Reimagine Work Series, brought to you in partnership with Future Forum by Slack, has convened leaders from across business sizes and category to connect, share insights, and build the new future of work together.
These conversations culminate in a three-hour, small group discussion on February 24 from 1:00 PM-4:00 PM EST. Join us as FORTUNE editors moderate discussions with senior leaders from a variety of industries. We are planning a thoughtful discourse, a sharing of best practices, and thoughts on how new technologies may provide a better way to work.
Managing a distributed workforce during a global pandemic isn’t something you can learn overnight. What are the new skills required to successfully manage a hybrid team? Can we throw out old norms and adopt smart, new processes that work? And how do we take better care of our middle managers and next generation of leaders so they can enable teams to do their best work?
We will address all of these questions and more with an ever growing list of speakers, including:
- Taher Behbehani, General Manager and Head, Mobile B2B Business Unit, Samsung Electronics America
- Nina Broadhurst, Principal and Work Studio Leader, Cuningham Group Architecture
- Jennifer Christie, Chief Human Resources Officer, Twitter
- Marlo J. Gaal, Senior Vice President and Chief Talent Officer, Ariel Investments
- Chris Glennon, Vice President, Global Real Estate, Intuit

FORTUNE CEO Alan Murray will sit down with leaders from some of the country’s top businesses adjusting to the effects of COVID-19, the Work from Home Revolution, and all of the other changes to our workplace?
What is the human toll of the structural disruptions of this past year? We’ll talk about mental health, productivity, and the new role of the Chief Medical Officer plus other ways companies are responding to the changes, challenges, and new opportunities that are impacting their workforces.
We all know how the pandemic is making us feel, but what are the data points behind those feelings? Slack shares the metrics, shedding light on the massive changes to how we work and live.
We want to hear what you are doing, what’s working, and what we need to focus on next. Join small group discussions with your peers as we tackle pressing workplace issues
This past year was unlike any other, and even companies with a strong culture and a track record of effective communication with employees have had to shift into an entirely different gear. How have companies kept their teams strong? How have they had to shift their internal communication strategies? We hear from executives in the trenches on the practical tools that have been most effective, plus their overall philosophy on culture and communication and whether that has shifted during the pandemic.
Each discussion leader will share one takeaway from their roundtable.
What is the most sustainable approach to remote work? While we move at a relentless pace and suffer from feeling less connected to our coworkers, can we also use this moment to evolve our approach to work, improving corporate cultures in this new WFH environment?
What does a post-pandemic office look like? From how employees collaborate on a daily basis to how we structure our teams, COVID-19 is rewriting everything we (used to) know. How can we rethink the role of the office in a WFH or hybrid environment? How do we optimize productivity and inclusion? We hear from a panel of experts who have been leading the charge for their organizations.
Whether it’s addressing the global health crisis, gun safety, or racial and social injustice the leadership team at the venerable Levi Strauss & Co. has taken a stand. When the pandemic hit hard how did this values-led company face the challenge?
Many companies now have a head of D&I, but how can ALL leaders focus on building more diverse and inclusive workplaces in this new world? How can we harness the impacts of COVID-19 to build a better workplace, and not regress in our efforts toward greater equality, not just in our organizations but in the world?
As cities around the country take advantage of a new economic development strategy to entice workers who can work from anywhere, how are these programs putting unlikely locations on the national map. And what does it mean for the future of workplaces and the future of cities?
How you can support the emotional well-being of your team, your customers, and your leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond? And how does this, in turn, support your larger business success? As we look toward the future, we sit down with this group to talk about real support, how to give it to your community, and how to see the benefits
