With work environments disrupted, women are taking on more caregiving responsibilities at home and experiencing stress at higher rates than men. In fact, according to McKinsey & Co., 1 in 4 women are considering leaving or downshifting their careers due to the pandemic, and 5.3 million women have already opted out. This is not business as usual - we’re at risk of losing 33 years of progress in women’s careers due to COVID-19.
Join Addie Swartz, CEO of reacHIRE, as she moderates a panel with industry leaders sharing their perspectives on how to keep women supported, so careers and company talent pipelines stay on track. The panel will: 1) Explore the pandemic's scope of the impact on women’s careers and its effects 2) Share new approaches to help companies meet women where they are 3) Discuss the opportunities to be an industry leader by providing better support systems for working women 4) Identify actions companies can take to build a bridge back to work for women post-COVID
