108 - Keynote Panel Discussion - COVID-19 and Its Impact on Working Women

Tuesday, December 8th • 10:30am — 11:15am PDT

The pandemic is continuing to affect lives around the world, but it is also shining a light on gender equality. According to McKinsey, women’s jobs are 1.8 times more vulnerable to this crisis than men’s jobs, and women make up 39% of global employment but account for 54% of overall job losses – this is in addition to the burden of unpaid care, which is disproportionately carried by women. This panel will discuss the challenges the pandemic has on women and what is needed to ensure women also have opportunities during these unprecedented times.
