What Is The Gender Equitable Recovery?

It’s a secret to no one that for a long time, women have had to overcome systemic disadvantages in the workplace…and the pandemic did not help.  As we’ve explored in other episodes, the lock downs of recent years have affected women (and working mothers, in particular) more acutely than other parts of the working population, and that effect was so pervasive it was even given a name: “she-cession.”     Of course, now that the pandemic is over you’d expect the She-cession to be as well, and that’s where our guest on this podcast would say you might be wrong.

Sarah Kaplan of the Rotman School of Business joins Chris to talk about the work that still left to do, and how the pandemic has made it harder.
