The Working Women's Issue

Virtual - Link will be sent one day prior


Data shows that women are taking the brunt of the burden as employers scale back staff and dynamics change within households due to the pandemic. Women’s work hours fell more than 5x men in the spring and one study shows that 70% of those who left the workforce since March due to child issues were women. For employers, this puts additional stress on employer workforce diversity efforts. For women, it can impact short-term job security, earnings, and merit-based promotion and raises.  It can also result in higher likelihood of layoffs, flattened career trajectory, and a hit to lifetime earnings.

We’ll look at the latest in research in the area, share some ideas of how employers are rising to the challenge, what this means to working women and other impacted groups, and then open it up for a discussion on how we all weather this unprecedented time.
