SpeakHer Mind Presents

Fostering Equity for Women During

COVID-19 & Beyond

 About The Event

The pandemic has had a highly disproportionate effect on women, impacting their careers, work-life balance, mental health, and much more. Join us for a SpeakHer Mind conversation with Pat Wadors, Chief Talent Officer and CHRO at Procore Technologies, and Amy Roy, Chief People Officer of Namely, on the impact of COVID-19 on women in the workplace and ways HR teams can deliberately create equitable workplaces for women.

We will take a deeper dive into the data surrounding COVID-19 and women in the workplace, while seeking to answer how existing gender inequalities have compounded the problem, in addition to the societal attitudes that have shaped how women and men experience a crisis.

Our panel will discuss how HR teams can implement innovative methods of building equitable practices within their organizations to further support the advancement of women.
