I used to be a pretty hardcore advocate for everyone having their video turned on for meetings in a remote working environment.
I still mostly do that myself, but I find I am a lot more aware these days that everyone has their own situation to deal with, and maybe they have good reasons for having their video off. Maybe they don’t care to share their home with everyone from work. Maybe they have something going on at home that needs to stay private. Maybe they just don’t feel like having their video on.
Why should it matter to me?
