Moderated by Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani, a panel of four female business leaders shared their strategies for fostering trust in an evolving business landscape at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit in California. The women discussed a wide range of business management topics, from learning to appeal to a Gen Z workforce to taking Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) more seriously to create a healthy culture internally, Fortune reports.

The panel conversation addressed a recent “Trust Barometer” survey conducted by global communications firm Edelman, which revealed a huge drop in employee trust among institutions, something which all panelists agreed can be mended with representation and more clear communication from employers.
