The WIS SA Committee is proud to announce its companion event for this year's National Road Show. Please join us for a live stream of Session One: Women, Work and Economic Security: COVID-19 and a Gender Equal Recovery.
This year's National Road Show topic, The Caring Crunch and its disproportionate impact for women compared with men, is sure to resonate strongly with attendees, and we will have a lot to discuss! Make sure you are part of this important conversation. The live stream will be followed by networking and nibbles.
WOMEN, WORK AND ECONOMIC SECURITY: COVID-19 AND A GENDER EQUAL RECOVERY
Australian women have been hard hit by two years of COVID-19 crisis with long term implications for economic security in older age. The unpaid labour distribution at home has only been exacerbated by successive lockdowns, women working in frontline sectors have experienced increased hours and anxiety around contracting the virus, and the highly feminised sectors of the workforce, such as the arts and hospitality, have had their working hours drastically decreased. This presentation will outline the gendered impact of the pandemic experience for Australian women, and the gender-responsive policy settings and business practices urgently needed to design gender equality and economic security into the COVID recovery.
This event is open to all (members and non-members from SA).
