Yayyy!! Loved this episode re: Zoom calls! However, one of the challenges that I’ve had with the Zoom camera and WFH relates to equity. If I live in a nice home, I have no problem showing it. But if I don’t – ie. managing homeschooling, lower income – it’s a hard conversation to have employees show up using their videos all of the time. Loved your suggestion about creating a policy that fits and would encourage managers to take a variety of needs and circumstances into consideration. For example, I know how much angst I would have had if I would have had to show up on camera in the first apt I had when I got out of college. #dodgedabullet My heart goes out to anyone who is juggling that same scenario!

This is great Malla. Thank you. They only need to use a background that Zoom provides. Or create a small space that is blank! – Kathi
