COVID-19 and Gender Equality

Oct 14, 2:30–4 PM
Free and open to the public

Pandemics tend to have an outsize impact on women and families, beyond the immediate health risks. COVID-19 is no exception. During this panel, experts from the Wellesley Centers for Women will discuss the unique ways that COVID-19 is impacting women’s work-life balance, economic opportunity, and mental wellbeing.

This virtual program is part of the Social Change Dialogues series hosted by the Wellesley Centers for Women. The series is made possible with support from the Cowles/Sulzberger Fund, an endowed gift to the Centers. View a recording of the event.
