About

Coined the She-cession, the economic fallout of Covid-19 has disproportionately affected women in key ways. Women are one-third more likely to work in a sector that was shut down during the lockdown, more likely to be furloughed, and 47 percent more likely to have lost or quit their jobs. And, women shoulder more child care responsibilities and household work than men.

Centering Women in Economic Recovery is a free 5-day lunchtime series with regional female thought leaders from organizations with deep expertise in policy, business, community, public sector, and education. These lunchtime sessions will explore the policies and actions needed to build a more female-forward infrastructure that supports equity for working women.
