Happy International Women’s Day!
To celebrate, tune in today at noon ET for our Women’s CoLab and Bustle special event, hosted by our own Diana Alvear and Raquel Wilson. The webcast will be filled with practical advice, panels and conversations with women executives from Verizon, Chipotle, Walmart and Kimberly-Clark. If you’re a young professional, a working mom, a seasoned C-suite leader and/or a fierce ally, this event has something for you.
“The conversation around women in the workforce is a conversation that is more critical than ever,” said Tami Erwin, CEO of Verizon Business. “Throughout the pandemic, women have been disproportionately affected by job losses. Income trends have revealed that women are more likely to permanently lose their jobs versus men, and can also expect their income to fall by 50 percent more than men do. We have to recognize these disparities and take concrete action to ensure that — in this new world — inequality is stamped out.”
