Mobilize Women: Fighting the She-cession


The world has shared a major event that has had a huge impact on women's careers, employment and wages. Join Ellevate and a panel of speakers as they talk about the she-cession and the future.

Wed, May 19, 2021 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT

About 865,000 women dropped out of the workforce in September 2020. Jobs lost by women accounted for 100% of the 140,000 net jobs that disappeared from the US economy in December of 2020. Globally, women’s job losses due to COVID-19 are 1.8 times greater than men’s.

The downward turn women’s place in the economy has contributed to what many are calling a she-cession. The world, sharing the major event that is the pandemic, has had a huge impact on the careers, employment, and wages of women specifically. As we navigate what is hopefully the tail-end of the pandemic, much is left up in the air about our futures and the working world we’re returning to.

Join Ellevate and a panel of speakers as they talk about that future. These workforce leaders, career coaches, economy experts, working mothers will discuss:

  • The state of the economy with women leaving the workforce
  • Navigating working motherhood in the pandemic
  • Additional and compounded challenges women of color face in the she-cession
  • The new, hopeful future for women and the economy at the pandemic’s end
