Women continue to face barriers to employment. The pandemic highlighted and exacerbated these challenges. An inclusive recovery for women requires understanding how intersecting factors combine to benefit some, and leave others behind when integrating into the labour market. By applying an intersectional lens, we can better understand and address the unique barriers diverse women face in employment.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn about systemic barriers women face in accessing the workforce
  • The disproportionate impact the pandemic had on women in employment
  • Intersectional lens provides insights to support women in gaining employment
