CED Special Policy Watch: Women and COVID-19, Averting a Major Setback
APRIL 08, 2021
The disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on industries where women are heavily concentrated combined with the virus’s debilitating impact on child care options and in-person schooling threatens progress in the integration and representation of women in the US economy.
Even if the reversal proves temporary, as is likely, the career consequences of the pandemic for individual women could have long-lasting effects, slow future progress, and affect the economic strength of the entire nation. Thus, the impact of COVID-19 on women is a first-order national concern.
As an attendee of this webcast, you will learn:
- The impact of COVID-19 on women in the workforce and the consequences for the US economy.
- The impact of COVID-19 on women and girls globally.
- How the vaccine rollout impacts women and their childcare, school options, and women’s health concerns.
- Solutions to help avert a major setback for women in the workforce and the economy overall.
