The Gapingvoid Email

Three times a week, we'll send you a thought-provoking illustration about the world of work along with a short snippet of insight. Our emails cover topics like company culture, design thinking, leadership strategies, creating better-functioning teams, navigating the hybrid work environment, and more. They are designed as quick reads to give you insight into working smarter and being more connected to why you do what you do. We also feature guest posts from thought leaders around the world and answer culture questions sent in by our readers. People who enjoy the daily email most are often senior leaders in business, healthcare execs, entrepreneurs, and academics.


We hope you'll join our community!
