A panel discussion regarding working from home in this post-pandemic world. For some, it's the new normal, and for others, it's a necessity. For others still, it's back to business as usual, including returning to the office on a daily basis.

The panel discussed perspectives from both ends of the spectrum, as well as raised and explored mental health considerations in the wake of this new way of working.
