What a year it’s been.
It’s safe to say when we launched Ripple Effect this past January, none of us could have predicted how drastically and quickly the world would change. Season 1 feels like a lifetime ago!
As with most things this year, Ripple Effect has been impacted by the rapid changes happening around us. As we began production of this season, we wanted to know how leaders across the globe are reimagining work to keep up with the unique obstacles thrown at us this year.
