We are grateful to be able to bring this publication to the WSB alumni community, even in the midst of the pandemic. Though it pales in importance to many other factors right now, Update magazine remains a meaningful point of connection.
This issue may look a bit different than previous issues, but there’s good reason for it. To keep our team and sources safe, we cut back on photoshoots and travel. The original photos that we did capture were taken at a distance of at least six feet with our photographer wearing a mask, and we shot outside whenever possible.
The majority of our interviews were conducted virtually, with a few taking place outside in a physically distanced setup. Similarly, the WSB publications team worked remotely, collaborating through virtual formats to put this magazine together.
We have covered some important topics in this issue, including WSB’s response to the pandemic and a special feature on how racial identity has affected some of our alums’ careers. Thank you for reading these stories and for being part the WSB network. We wish you well in the months ahead.
