The Talk from The WealthiHer Network: Getting work right for women
The Talk by the WealthiHer Network
Women’s roles have been challenged with many women reporting feeling the pandemic has reversed decades of progress on equality.
Women have worked more support hours than men and while women make up 47% of the UK’s workforce, they account for 52% of people furloughed and 54% of job losses, a report from the Women’s Budget Group found. This poses the question of whether women are deemed to be less valuable workers than men. However, there have also been positive outcomes as a result of the pandemic – a greater awareness of others and their need for symbiosis between life and work, a realisation that flexibility is possible and dare I say it... more efficient.
