Empathy is meaningful when employees are listened to, when they feel that they are heard and when leadership commits to implementing solutions that enable them to thrive, prosper and successfully manage personal and professional responsibilities. The current pandemic provides employers with an outstanding opportunity to implement solution-focused employee benefits, particularly those which impact women and their professional advancement. There are five areas of action in which leaders can make empathy meaningful: 1. Invest in communication best practices; 2. Prioritize and implement disability risk mitigation measures; 3. Critically examine current benefits and the corporate culture; 4. Empower women to manage their careers & continue to support their professional advancement; and 5. Leadership must commit to demonstrate empathy for employees
