Much has been written about the crisis of loneliness that plagues society due, at least in large part, to our collective obsession with social media. But little attention has been given to our rising professional isolation due to our increasingly virtual worlds — especially post-pandemic now that we have grown accustomed to the ease and convenience of Zoom.
