    Hi Harleen,

    I'm sure EESL employees greatly appreciate all these initiatives. Regarding the last point on performance assessments, given the disruption caused by COVID, have you made alterations to how performance assessments are conducted? i.e., if women as primary caretakers are taking significant leave, is their assessment affected?

    Thanks so much, Pam
