Nov 11, 2020 12:00pm ‐ Nov 11, 2020 12:50pm

Identification: WUS20SS201

Did you know that women are responsible for many of the attributes that make work teams and firm performance better? Intelligence, psychological safety and retention rises based on women’s expertise. Yet women’s levels of confidence rise more slowly than men and self-advocacy can create a “double-bind” which hinders career progress. Women make up 39% of global employment but account for 54% of overall job losses. Beyond potential job loss, women are also experiencing the pressure of childcare, racial inequality and mental-health challenges. During this course, we will take a look at data to illustrate the impact and the opportunity from the lens of different groups of women, including women of color. We will also site best methods to achieve resiliency and results - feeling empowered to accomplish, despite challenging times. Join RSM to discuss the current state of gender equality and what steps we can take to ensure progress for women continues.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the impact of COVID-19, the challenges and benefit of the new normal
  • Identify key gender inequality issues and how to address them for success
  • Determine what steps you can take to own your future and close the gender gap
