With everyone who can work from home, and schools and daycares ordered closed, it is critical for employers to understand and prepare for the implications of this new work environment from a gender equity perspective.  Our panelists will delve into problems that are already emerging, including unequal division of household labor, discrimination against caregivers in pay and promotion, and the insidious stereotype that women will retreat from paid work to handle childcare while men’s productivity might even increase.  We will also discuss strategies for employers to avoid gender and caregiver discrimination, and to better support employees navigating this unprecedented time of working solely from home while full-time parenting.
