EBRD podcast assesses impact of COVID-19 on women's work

 May 07, 2020

How will COVID-19 impact the future of women at work? This challenging question is posed in a podcast within the EBRD's Pocket Dilemmas series.

EBRD colleagues Kerrie Law and Jonathan Charles invited guests to discuss the topic, taking a look at how the coronavirus pandemic is changing people's attitude to far more than just public health. 

Knowledgeable guests share gender impact ideas 

The podcast, titled What does the coronavirus pandemic mean for gender inequality?, delves into how the impact of COVID-19 might affect men and women differently and how women may suffer more from the economic fallout from the crisis, be vulnerable to domestic abuse and might often have to provide the increased amount of childcare which comes with lockdowns.

EBRD's presenters were joined virtually on Zoom by guests Linda Midgley; PwC Specialist in Sustainable Strategy, and SDGs; Dawn Duhaney, Partnership Manager at Wellcome Trust UK and Sonya Barlow, Co-founder of Like Minded Females.
