Covid-19 is an unprecedented crisis with ripple effects on virtually every aspect of society. At stake is not just the health of millions of people but also economies, supply chains, governance, poverty, and inclusion. Decision-makers struggle to understand the new challenges, the data is incomplete, and there is so little past experience to draw upon, particularly in reopening society and moving to recovery and rebuilding.
Sampriti Mukherjee, Reseracher at the Institute shared her thoughts at the What Works Virtual Summit 2020 on June 4, 2020. Anchored by the Social Progress Index, a powerful bench-marking tool to connect decision makers with fresh perspectives on social performance, What Works forums brought together leaders and change-makers from business, government, and civil society to debate and advance approaches to support people and the planet. It is an opportunity to engage with peers through interactive sessions and small group breakouts to apply hard data and spotlight experience to help drive social change.
