The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic forced many mothers out of the workforce, at disproportionate rates compared to fathers. While men have recouped most lost jobs, women – especially BIPOC women – have been forced out due to exacerbated systemic inequities and underfunding for the care economy. Meanwhile, only 6% of American companies offer their employees child care benefits.
This backdrop sits at a time of immense social change, disruption, and possibility. The changes in work and working styles, expectations of employers, and a commitment to DEIB present a window of opportunity for businesses to not only actively support the re-entry of women in the workforce, but also to accelerate the advancement of workers with families and usher in a broader commitment for gender equity.
Join us for a 90-minute working group, convening leaders to surface effective solutions, understand barriers, catalyze partnerships, & share cross-sector knowledge to build the business case for supporting dual-working moms – those who work both in the home & in the workforce.
This working group is part of a NationSwell Collaborative project with American Family Insurance Institute for Corporate & Social Impact, Annie E. Casey Foundation, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Care in Action, Caring Across Generations & Working for Women, and Pivotal Ventures.
NationSwell’s events and experiences are designed to bring together diverse, purpose-driven leaders and organizations for learning, inspiration, relationship-building, and societal impact.
