It’s no secret that gender equity has taken a major step backward during the pandemic. Globally, women lost more than 64 million jobs in 2020—or 5% of all jobs held by women—according to Oxfam International. In July, women’s participation in the labour force reached its lowest level in 30 years.
As the economy improves it will become critical for women to have a path forward to return to the workplace. Watch this recording for a conversation on how companies and leaders have a unique opportunity to reimagine the workplace–and to address structural and systemic barriers for women and other underrepresented groups.
Our conversation is an annual event recognizing Women’s History Month in Canada and will acknowledge Persons Day. For questions, please contact Joanna Harper.
