COVID-19 & Working Women: Stopping the Slide

COVID-19 & Working Women: Stopping the Slide

Thursday, February 11, 2021 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EST)


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on corporate America, with reports finding that employees are working for longer, on average, than they did before the pandemic. As the boundaries between work and home continue to blur, working women have been particularly affected, especially those who are caregivers. Many women are now downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce completely. Such trends could undo years of progress made by women in the workplace.  

Join a discussion led by attorneys from Goulston & Storrs and industry leaders around how companies can better support women so they can stay on track and continue to build rewarding careers during the COVID-19 crisis.

Through an interactive conversation and data-driven insights, we will explore:

  • Where employees are struggling 
  • Best practices to ensure women are supported in this virtual workplace 
  • The legal guardrails in place to guide company decisions 

This is the second event in NAIOP's new DEI Advance series - a series of programs focused on diversity, equity and inclusion in commercial real estate.
