Education at Home and the Impacts on Women in the Workplace

Tuesday, November 17th

3:00pm – 5:00pm

Please note that this session will take place in the late afternoon rather than our regularly schedule morning sessions.  We hope this presents more opportunity to participate.

Join AZHREF virtually on November 17th as we discuss schooling at home and the impacts it has had on women in the workplace.  With most education and working arrangements being brought home or disrupted in some way, many women in the workplace have experienced a heightened challenge between professional responsibilities while being a caregiver and in some cases, educator.  It has been reported that one in four women in the workplace are considering either leaving or changing careers due to Covid-19.  During this collaborative session, our panel of experts will introduce us to a wide perspective of the impacts and complexities the pandemic has introduced to our world with a focus on the impacts on education and women in the workplace.
