Between the COVID-19 pandemic and the nationwide reckoning around racial justice sparked by the police killing of George Floyd, this last year has forced many of us to reconsider what is important, and what role we have to play in the betterment of our future. That includes companies and the people who lead them.
“There’s a real moment here for organizations to reconceptualize the future of work in a much more equitable way,” NYC entrepreneur Stephen Bailey told Built In. “I believe that, in a world where there’s so much change, future-ready leadership is critical to advancement, and organizations should be focused on providing equitable access to career-enhancing development opportunities.”
Bailey’s own startup ExecOnline, a virtual education platform designed specifically for corporate leaders, is working to provide those opportunities. The company announced on Wednesday it closed on a $45 million Series D led by OMERS Growth Equity.
