Join us October 21 for a research seminar that will explore issues related to women’s economic declines during the pandemic and the ability of women to participate equally in existing markets, post-recession.

Seminar details

The COVID-19 pandemic disproportionally impacted women, both in terms of gender equality and women’s economic gains. Heading into the pandemic, women, particularly women of color, were more likely to work in sectors hit hardest by business closures, such as healthcare, retail, and the informal economy. Women were also more impacted by the burdens of caregiving, and mothers with young children have been especially slow to reenter the labor force.

This program will discuss how we can ensure economic recovery efforts include and support women and how we create a more equitable economic environment that offers the tools, resources, and opportunities women need to thrive.

This seminar is part of a Federal Reserve Community Development Research Seminar Series focused on supporting an inclusive recovery.
