COVID-19 One Year Later: The Effect on Women in the Workforce
OBI’s 2021 Speaker Series is sponsored by Bank of America
Oregon has now been battling the COVID-19 pandemic for a full year. Now, after 12 months of business closures and restrictions, social distancing and quarantining, the incredible toll on our collective physical and mental health is becoming clearer.
The economic impacts from COVID-19 continue to devastate families – and we know that Oregon women are disproportionately impacted. According to a recent New York Times article, “the recession unleashed by the pandemic is sidelining hundreds of thousands of women and wiping out the hard-fought gains they made in the workplace over the past few years.”
Join us on March 11 to hear from a panel of women with key insights on the challenges of working during the pandemic and what that means for Oregon’s economy as a whole.
