The Shecession, COVID, and Women in the Federal Workplace
COVID has had a greater effect on women than men, especially on women of color and women who are single parents. The “Shecession” has the potential to set back years of progress toward increasing the number of women in senior management. The impact on women has been exacerbated by the same issues that were major causes of the “Broken Rung” that existed even before COVID.
This panel will explain and highlight the issues and provide concrete actions Federal agencies can take to mitigate the impacts of COVID on Women in the Federal workplace.
- Provide government agencies tools and action items to take back to their offices to address these issues
- Better understand the challenges women in the workforce face and the impact COVID has had on their careers
