“To me, it’s all about integrity. If you say you value work-life balance, but then your actions don’t align with that, like you’re sending emails as a boss at 11pm, it doesn’t bode well for the rest of the organization. So I think it’s identifying your values and then clarifying: what does it look like to live and work in alignment with those values?” – Meghan Reid
