The pandemic has exposed inequities and widened the gaps in many ways. Gender inequity is no exception. It has been broadly reported that the pandemic has disproportionately impacted working women, resulting in an alarming reversal of gains made in recent years. One study in 2021 found that 64% of college-educated mothers had reduced their working hours, compared with 36% of college-educated fathers. Also children spent more than twice as much time with telecommuting moms than dads.
This is why we are launching the Women & Allies Series in March 2022, the International Women’s Month. The series is dedicated to helping women voice their concerns and needs in the workplace and empowering their allies with ideas and tools to address them. To try and bring the most value we are starting with global perspectives, since this issue has been experienced to varying degrees around the world. We are delighted to bring the first in the series to you directly from Paris, France, where we believe there are lessons to be learned for all of us.
Our guests joining Sonya Sepahban, CEO of OurOffice are:
Eglé de Richemont, Managing Director, American Chamber of Commerce in France
Isabelle Guillou, Business Performance Director at Altarea
Lamia Benaouali, Data Engineer at Lucky Cart eCommerce company
Matthieu Beaurain, Founder & President Lincoln talent management advisory firm
The panel will provide data and insights, as well as their personal stories and perspectives on the following key topics:
- The challenges disproportionately impacting women compared to men in the workplace in France
- The role that women’s allies (i.e. their employers, leaders and peers) play in addressing these challenges in France
- Predictions over the next few years — will things stay the same, get better or worse?
