A discussion on the meaning of merit and how it might be changing.

How does it work as a measure, as the way we’re recruited, promoted and even paid?

Is it always fair, or can merit be used to cover some darker things like prejudice and personal biases?

Our guests include corporate trailblazer Margaret Jackson,
who in her early career was denied employment because of her gender, despite her considerable merit.
