Women in Exodus: Reversing the Pandemic’s Unjust Effects Part 1
While COVID-19 has caused a global health pandemic, its economic shockwaves have induced another crisis: the mass exodus of women from the global workforce. The economic impact of COVID-19 on women as a group has been manifold: disproportionate rates of job loss, greater complexity of workload, increased unpaid care work, and less out-of-home care support, to name a few. On this first part of “Women in Exodus: Reversing the Pandemic’s Unjust Effects,” a special miniseries of The Edge, five of Skillsoft’s female leaders come together to paint a picture of the pandemic-era challenges that women workers are facing.
