The last year devastated women’s participation in the American workforce, with 2.2 million exiting the labor market in the first nine months of the pandemic alone. And while recent job numbers are showing signs of recovery, women and people of color are missing out on recent wage and job growth.
Please join us for a fireside chat with two leading women in business and philanthropy, Jean Case and Mellody Hobson, to discuss how we can address the needs of women and workers of color in a post-pandemic workforce. The primary question we will unpack is: How can we modernize the American workforce to create a more equitable recovery for women and workers of color?
