COVID-19 & Gender Equity:
Monday, July 19th at 7:00 pm
Please join the Silicon Valley Democratic Club, DAWN, and BAIAD for a discussion focused on women and intersectional equity as we struggle to recover from the pandemic. The pandemic has been disproportionately devastating for women, especially low-income women and women of color. 2.3 million women left the workforce in the last year, putting the women's labor force participation rate at 57% - thirty years of progress for women, erased in a matter of months. It's estimated that women in the formal work sector lost $800 billion last year due to lost jobs and stepping out of the workforce to care for children, the sick and elderly. This is a crisis within a crisis. .
Special Guest Speaker
Special Advisor for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Programs and Senior Research Scholar at the Clayman Institute for Gender Research, Medicine, at Stanford University. She also served as a disaster relief physician during the pandemic. READ HER FULL BIO
