Many Shades of Pink The pandemic and its myriad effects on women+

It feels like a lifetime ago since the World Health Organisation declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. And, as reported by McKinsey and Monash University, among countless others, women+, including all who identify as women, around the globe have been disproportionately affected across all facets of their lives.

But one woman’s COVID isn’t another’s. Just as different populations and individuals have had unique experiences with the virus itself, so have women+. Women+ have been on the frontlines physically, emotionally, and mentally. And whether they’ve left the workforce, struggled with COVID fatigue, or reinvented themselves for new opportunities, their professional and personal lives have dramatically changed.

Michelle Boockoff-Bajdek, CMO of Skillsoft, will explore how women+ are being affected by — and in some cases, driving — global phenomena like the Great Resignation and the IT Skills Gap. She’ll share compelling real-life stories of female healthcare providers, knowledge workers, teachers, mothers, and more.

In this webinar, you’ll learn about

  • How COVID has changed the roles of women+ in the workforce
  • Potential long-term effects of the Pink Pandemic at both the individual and organisational level
  • How you can drive meaningful change now as a woman, an ally, or an organisation
  • A recovery plan that engages women+ in strategic reskilling and upskilling so they can continue advancing as they were before the pandemic
