Balancing Work and Family in a COVID‑19 World:
The Disproportionate Impact on Women
The COVID-19 crisis is challenging for everyone. But many women are feeling more overwhelmed and overworked than ever. Women are disproportionately impacted because they are more likely to bear the lion’s share of the burden for childcare, education and family responsibilities previously handled outside the home.
We met on Tuesday, June 9, for transparent discussion on communicating and finding creative solutions that help women navigate the next normal. Watching the recording and discover how to turn difficult conversations into opportunities to create a more productive work environment in which everyone wins.
