The COVID-19 pandemic has threatened the progress made on gender equity. Women make up 54% of overall job losses due to COVID-19 and they have been on the frontlines of fighting the disease. One of every three jobs held by women is considered essential, and women of color are more likely to have essential jobs. The burden of unpaid care, which has risen during the pandemic, falls disproportionately on women and threatens the health of our economy and business. This panel will look at action to further progress on gender equity.
